Lindsey Vonn got her fans’ attention Monday when she dropped an incredible hype video ahead of her return this weekend to World Cup in Austria.

“PLEASE WATCH UNTIL THE END. I’m NOT done yet!!! It’s been a tough 6 weeks but I’m on skis again and excited to get back in the starting gate. See you in St. Anton this weekend #backinthemix @skibrown #nevergiveup,” the 34-year-old Olympic gold medalist captioned her Instagram post.  (RELATED: Check Out The Hottest 2018 U.S. Female Winter Olympians [SLIDESHOW])

The clip starts out with the Alpine ski racer skiing down the hill last year at Copper Mountain in Colorado and shows her crashing to the ground before being taken off the hill on a stretcher after hurting her knee.

At one point, fans get a glimpse at some of the work it took her to get back on those skis, showing her tremendous workout and, at each point, getting stronger and stronger.

And finally, it ends with a shot of the World Cup champion looking straight into the camera and declaring without a doubt in her mind, “I’m not done yet.”

The post comes days ahead of her return to World Cup racing, where she has previously stated she hopes to break the all-time World Cup record of 86 wins, held by Ingemar Stenmark. But whether or not she does, the 2018-2019 season will be her final year of competing. She needs only five more victories to break it. She currently sits at 82.

“Regardless of the record, I am still proud of who I am and what I have accomplished during my career,” Vonn shared at the time. “I have nothing left to prove to myself or anyone else. I am not the nervous little girl standing on top of a mountain anymore; I am a woman ready for the next chapter. I can do this! My legacy will be more than skiing and there are many chapters left to write.”
