Bad news, ladies. If Lindsey Vonn can’t get a date on Valentine’s Day, there can’t be any hope for the rest of us.
For all the talk of the Olympic Village being a hot spot for, um, romance, the American ski racer turned to Twitter for help after initially forgetting about the holiday altogether.
Predictably, she got plenty of responses.
God let it be me... I?ve got feet on the ground in Pyeongchang to hand deliver your valentine in the form of kinesiotape and PRP to heal your ailments just say the word— Matt Lucas (@dr_MLucas) February 14, 2018
With ya there, Lindsey. Heading over for the V-Day dinner at the USOC dining hall. Bring your pup and I?ll pour the blue Powerade.— Tyler George (@tgeorge1323) February 14, 2018
French biathlete Martin Fourcade suggested his friend and countryman, cross-country skier Richard Jouve. At 23, he might be a little on the young side for the 33-year-old Vonn, but, hey, we’re not judging. Their couple name could be VonnJouve (say it so it rhymes with “Bon Jovi”).
IndyCar driver Conor Daly didn’t need a wingman, and just went for it himself.
L-oves America— Conor Daly (@ConorDaly22) February 14, 2018
I-s going to win gold
N-eeds to be my Valentine
D-oes magical things on skis
S-now and stuff
E-veryone is cheering for you
Y-ou think this will work?#HappyValentinesDay
Daly also tweeted recently about nearly breaking some new Ikea furniture out of excitement over snowboarder Shaun White. Since having someone who’s obligated to help assemble Ikea furniture is basically the entire point of dating, Vonn might actually want to follow up on this one.
In any case, Vonn can spend the holiday with her adorable dog Lucy, and probably her trainer, prepping for competition. But to all the eligible bachelors in PyeongChang: step it up.Nora Princiotti can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow her on Twitter at @NoraPrinciotti.
