Lindsey Vonn may have just retired, but her days of training with Under Armour are far from over. It was announced today that the celebrated professional skier is the global ambassador of Under Armour and Dwayne Johnson’s Project Rock brand designed for athletes.
“I am so excited to be on team Project Rock,” Vonn said in a statement. “What I find so inspiring about Dwayne is that he always gives 110% in everything that he does. He basically stands for 100% authenticity and 100% effort.”

I'm so proud to announce that I'm the FIRST athlete to join team #ProjectRock alongside @therock. DJ's attitude towards training, and life in general, inspires me to be better, stronger; pushing to bend boundaries any way I can. And just because I'm retired doesn't mean my training is over. My next chapter is just beginning!! #BuildTheBelief with us 3/21. #WEWILL @underarmour
Johnson made the announcement on his own Instagram page, as well. He captioned the video post: “Proud to welcome @LindseyVonn as our first ever #ProjectRock Ambassador. A woman who I’ve known, admired and respected over the years. The hardest worker in the room. The best worker in the room.”
In February 2016, Johnson and UA announced a long-term partnership dubbed Project Rock that would include lifestyle and footwear products in the collection.
