the Sports Illustrated Lindsey Vonn Cover Could Melt Snow

This Sports Illustrated Lindsey Vonn cover is a little bit more than provocative. I would definitely describe the cover as attention grabbing. Her bent over figure in her clingy pink ski suit might raise a few eyebrows; some have already been quick to say that the cover displays the athlete as a sexual object and not a competitor—even though the headline reads ‘American’s best woman skier ever.’

There was another skier cover page back in 1992 of A.J. Kitt doing a similar pose, yet that one didn’t garner the same amount attention that Lindey Vonn’s cover has. I wonder why?
