The documentary chronicles the iconic skier’s final months as a competitive skier -- including her final event at the World Championships in Sweden this past February in which she earned a bronze medal -- while looking back on her career from child prodigy to decorated Olympian to global superstar, according to network officials.

“Lindsey Vonn is a global icon of transformative force,” said HBO Sports executive vice president,Peter Nelson in a statement. “No skier, woman or man, has ever exerted her influence in sport and culture – ever transcended to her stature. There are a lot of athlete documentaries today, but this film, at once heartbreaking and inspiring, takes us places unseen with an elite athlete like Lindsey, revealing the sacrifice demanded of a champion confronting her human limits to end an unparalleled career.”
