Lindsey Vonn
may have
retired from competitive ski racing
, but that doesn’t mean
the legendary
three-time Olympic medalist
is done training for good. The
longtime, Under Armour athlete is shifting her focus from the
slopes to the gym, and she just became the first member of Under
Armour’s Project Rock team, alongside Dwayne “The Rock”
Johnson, according to a
press release
 from the company.

Vonn’s retirement comes after a long, successful
, but one littered with brutal crashes, injuries, and
comebacks. Vonn has won 82 World Cup races, the second-most of all
time for both men and women. She’s also the only American woman
to ever clinch downhill gold at the Olympics and win four World Cup
overall titles.

As she transitions away from the sport that made her famous, the
legendary skier will act as a global ambassador for Project Rock
and be the face of the project’s next women’s collection.

“What I find so inspiring about Dwayne is that he always gives
110 percent in all that he does,” Vonn said in a video
accompanying the campaign. “He basically stands for 110 percent
authenticity and 110 percent effort. That’s always what I try to
do when I’m in the gym and when I’m out of the gym.”

Vonn took to Instagram on Tuesday to announce the start of this
new chapter in her career. She sported a jacket emblazoned with
“Iron Paradise,” Johnson’s nickname for the gym. And in
typical Rock fashion, Johnson shared the news with his fans via
selfie video.


The next Project Rock collection releases globally on March 21
on, at
UA Brand Houses, and at select retailers.
