While Lindsey Vonn was having lunch with students at the Vail Ski and Snowboard Academy, Parker McDonald, a local Vail student, got up the nerve to ask the Olympian to homecoming. "I said, 'What are you doing tomorrow night, because there's a dance,"' Parker recalled. "'And I was wondering if you wanted to go with me."'

The 27-year-old member of the U.S. Ski Team was in town for the annual First Tracks team announcement, and she said yes. "I was like, 'What exactly is this going to be, and what time?"' Vonn said. "And I just had to pause for a minute. But Parker was such a gentleman and he asked me so politely that I just -- I couldn't resist his face."

After trading corsages and boutonnières, the pair piled into her car—with a few more of his friends.

Vonn said, "He invited me over to his friend's house for, like, the family pictures and stuff. So I went over and then I -- pretty much all the kids wanted to ride in my car over to the dance, so I think we may have fit a few too many kids into my car, but my Audi definitely handled it well. But we pulled up in style."

The pair spent the night dancing away at the school dance, the gym decorated with streamers and balloons. McDonald taught America's winningest ski racer how to "dougie." Said Vonn, "Parker had some pretty good moves...It was definitely a fun night."
