Downhill skier Lindsey Vonn won her first World Cup race on a U.S. slope and her fourth straight Alpine race on Wednesday at the difficult Birds of Prey course in Beaver Creek, Colorado.

After the gratifying victory, she did a little "Tebowing" and gave a shout-out to the Denver Broncos.


Vonn's Super-G win was her first on American snow and it came near her hometown of Vail.  It was so hyped, local kids were excused from school to watch their hero.

"Getting a chance to win at home, with a home crowd here," gushed Vonn.  "It's just more than I could've expected."

Vonn's excitement was not as surprising as the Tebowing move and the rumors it fanned.

Different media outlets have linked the the attractive and newly-separated Vonn and the wildly popular Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow's brother Robby since last week after a Public Relations Coordinator at the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association tweeted about the two sports stars:  "Depressed after learning about the new couple: Lindsey Vonn and Robby# Tebow.  Only in Colorado."

Vonn dropped to one knee, pumped her arms and did her Tebowing on the victory stand after getting permission from Robby—who was a member of the skier's "Vonntourage"—to perform the move.

 "I said if I did it [won] in Colorado or at home I would do it," said Vonn.  "Go Broncos.  I did it.  I got to represent."

Tongues and blogs started wagging about a Vonn/Tebow relationship after she pulled out of a season opening world cup slalom event due to a bad back on Nov. 27.  On the same day, Vonn released a statement saying she was divorcing her husband—and trainer—of four years, Thomas Vonn.

Vonn said she and Robby—who she met at the ESPY Awards are "just good friends."  

And what does the Denver quarterback's bro think about Vonn's imitation of the once-ridiculed Tebow pose?

"It's pretty cool," he said.

Video: Bill Cosby is a big fan of Tim Tebow

Bill Cosby is getting up there in age. He’s 74 years old and it appears things are still going fairly well for him, so good for Bill. That being said, I have to admit his mini rant about Tim Tebow and the Broncos was a little weird. Apparently Cosby has bought into the theory that [...]

NFL: What If Tim Tebow Wins Again This Week?

Tebow Time Tattoo would make A-Rod Jealous

Walk into Alex Rodriguez's house, you see the huge picture of himself as a half-man, half-horse (centaur). Look at this man's thigh, you see Tim Tebow as a centaur. I don't care about how he had a bet to get this tattoo, all that matters is the fact he doesn't have Tim Tebow's face on his arm. No jealousy from me until you get the Messiah's face, with...

Elway determined to succeed with Tebow

John Elway doesn't hate Tim Tebow. If he did, Elway wouldn't have personally apologized for recent comments that made it seem the Denver Broncos' commitment to Tebow was lacking.

McDaniels left more than Tebow and turmoil behind

(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated.) By EDDIE PELLS AP National Writer Josh McDaniels. The mere mention of his name brings back bitter, embarrassing memories in Denver. Yet only a year after he was unceremoniously booted out of Broncos headquarters, it might be time to rethink McDaniels' role in turning the Broncos into AFC West contenders.

Lovie Smith talks Tebow, Cutler, Forte

Two months ago (heck, even a month ago), Chicago coach Lovie Smith had to love his team’s chances heading to a game at Denver. Jay Cutler in a revenge game. Matt Forte on a tear.
