While Vonn is devastated at the lost opportunity to compete, she’ll have a new furry friend to comfort her!
Yesterday, the Olympian visited an animal shelter in Jupiter, Florida and found her perfect match in Leo, an adorable brindle boy that’s also dealing with a knee injury after being struck by a car.
