The Net Worth of Thomas Vonn

Thomas has a net worth estimated to be over $2 million thanks to his work in professional sports.

He also very likely shared significant wealth alongside his former wife, who has a net worth estimated to be over $3 million.

Education and Career

Thomas grew up in New York and after matriculating from high school, enrolled at St. Lawrence University located in Canton. From a young age, he developed a strong interest in alpine skiing, continuing his pursuit throughout college and beyond. The private university has around 2500 students enrolled annually and was originally founded by the Universalist Church though is now non-denominational.

This church would later merge with the Unitarian faith, integrating ideas of gender equality and critical thinking. This created the Theological School of St. Lawrence University which was operational for many years as part of the campus before closing down sometime during the 1960s.

Following his graduation, he fully pursued skiing professionally, and focused on the giant slalom. The sport requires skiing in between sets of pokes which are randomly spaced, so is a more technical form of skiing.

Lindsey and Thomas Vonn

His best performance, however, was when he competed in the 2002 Winter Olympics in the Super-G, an event more defined by speed, in which he finished in ninth place. He later focused on coaching his wife Lindsey, helping her win at the 2010 Winter Olympics, before becoming the coach of Dean Travers in 2015.

Former Wife – Lindsey Caroline Kildow Vonn

Lindsey Vonn (nee Kildow) was born 18 October 1984, in St Paul, Minnesota, and is of Norwegian ancestry.

Her parents were very supportive of her pursuing skiing at a young age and she started training as a child – her father had been a strong prospect for the professional sport until a knee injury derailed his momentum. She became inspired by Olympic gold medalist Picaboo Street who encouraged her to continue her path of skiing, later serving as her mentor.

With continued support and training from her family, peers, and mentors, she started to quickly rise up the ranks as a junior.

She eventually joined the US ski team and won four World Cup overall championships, including consecutive titles from 2008 to 2010. During the 2010 Winter Olympics, she won gold in the downhill which marked the first for an American. She continued to win eight World Cup season titles in downhill, along with five titles in Super-G. She also won three combined titles, and 20 World Cup crystal globe titles, reaching the top of the overall record for men and women.

The Success of Lindsey Vonn

Lindsey is one of only six women to have won World Cup alpine skiing races in all five disciplines – overall she won 82 World Cup races during her career, holding the women’s record for victories in the World Cup, surpassing the success of Annemarie Moser-Proll who had held the record since the 1970s.

She’s won four overall World Cup titles and is considered one of the greatest skiers of all time. She has also been named the most successful US skier.

During the latter part of her career, she won a Laureus Sportswoman of the Year Award and a Sportswoman of the Year award from the US Olympic Committee. She announced her retirement in 2019 following numerous injuries in the last few years, which gave her a lot of trouble. Prior to retirement, she became interested in broadcasting work, which may continue.

Personal Life

Thomas married Lindsey in 2007, having met through their shared passion in professional alpine skiing. Their marriage was held at the Silver Lake Lodge in Deer, Valley Utah and she took on his last name before she went on to have her title-winning streak which defined her career. A year after her gold medal win in the 2010 Olympics, the couple filed for divorce which was settled in 2013. Since then, he’s moved on and began a relationship with Shauna Kane – the couple have a child together – but he’s generally stayed out of the spotlight.

Lindsey began dating professional golf player and legend Tiger Woods in 2013 which lasted for two years. She also dated National Football League (NFL) assistant coach Kenan Smith for a year. In 2018, she started dating National Hockey League (NHL) defenseman PK Subban and after a year the two announced their engagement.

She remains an icon of professional sports and recently did a few modelling photo shoots for “Sports Illustrated”. She has also been listed as one of the hottest women of the year by “Maxim” magazine.
