It's been almost four months since Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn and golf sensation Tiger Woods announced they were dating via Facebook.

But despite the blossoming romance between the two professional athletes, the blond tells Vogue in their August issue that she has ruled out walking down the aisle for a second time.

"No, thanks!" she told the fashion mag. "I am definitely not getting married. To anyone."

The 28-year-old also revealed that she's no longer on speaking terms with her former husband and coach, Thomas Vonn. The couple announced that they were splitting after four years of marriage in 2011 and had their divorce finalized in January of this year.

"Honestly, I wouldn't take anything back. I wouldn't change being married. It was good for me and I was happy for a period of time, and I learned a lot about myself."

Vonn gushed about her first encounter with Woods at a charity event in 2012. "We immediately clicked, you know?" she recalled. "It was just one of those things.

We talked a lot, corresponded a lot, and he was a good friend who was always there. And then it became more."

She took a moment to reflect on the last six months and the major events that have shaped who she's become today.


"It's amazing. Life changes very quickly, in a very positive way, if you let it," she said as she laughed.

"I am a bit of a late bloomer. I'm delayed. Having a delayed reaction here! But I figured it out."

After spilling the beans on her personal life, the skier went on to speak about her professional aspirations.

"You can compete till about 34, or even longer. But most women retire because they want to have kids. If you're successful and your body's holding up, you could keep going, but most women don't," she explained.

"I don't know, I said I'm going to ski through the 2015 world championships in Vail and then…assess the situation."

Looks like she's lucky in love and on the slopes!
