Lindsey Vonn: The Final Season Coming to HBO This Fall
HBO announced Monday that Lindsey Vonn's (Vail, Colo.) documentary, entitled "Lindsey Vonn: The Final Season" will debut on Tuesday, Nov. 26 exclusively on HBO. The announcement was made by Peter Nelson, executive vice president, HBO Sports.
Known as the most decorated female alpine skier of all time, Vonn intimately recounts her final season in this feature-length documentary, with a look back at her transcendent career, from child prodigy with humble beginnings at Buck Hill, Minn. to the Olympic champion and winningest female alpine ski racer.
Lindsey Vonn: The Final Season traces Vonn’s exhilarating story from her childhood in Minnesota, all the way to the World Championships in Are, Sweden this past February, for what proved to be the epilogue of her fabled career, as she earned bronze in her final event. Teton Gravity Research, widely recognized as one of the premier documentary production companies in the outdoor action, adventure, and exploration space, had a camera crew embedded with Vonn throughout the winter months, capturing the final, intimate moments of her skiing journey.
“Lindsey Vonn is a global icon of transformative force,” said Peter Nelson. “No skier, woman or man, has ever exerted her influence in sport and culture — ever transcended to her stature. There are a lot of athlete documentaries today, but this film, at once heartbreaking and inspiring, takes us places unseen with an elite athlete like Lindsey, revealing the sacrifice demanded of a champion confronting her human limits to end an unparalleled career.”
Lindsey Vonn says, “I am thrilled to partner with HBO to give viewers an inside look into my career and to share my story with the world.”
The film will debut Tuesday, Nov. 26 10-11:30pm ET, exclusively on HBO and will also be available on HBO on Demand, HBO NOW, HBO GO and partners’ streaming platforms.
