Vonn has admitted to taking anti-depression pills to combat depression. She missed a World Cup race a few weeks ago, but claims she was hospitalized for a stomach complaint unrelated to depression.
Vonn filed for divorce from her husband, Thomas Vonn, last year. Thomas had been her coach and manager as well.
Except for missing one event for a hospitalization, Vonn’s season has been going well. She is currently third overall in World Cup standings and has won 4 speed races this season. Vonn is first in the Downhill and Super Giant Slalom competition.
The next World Cup race is December 12-15 in Val d’lsere,France.
