World champion, schmorld champion — Lindsey Vonn just got crushed by Ashley Graham on an indoor skiing machine, despite the fact that Graham is pregnant and, you know, Vonn has nearly 100 gold skiing medals to her name. The women battled it out at the gym, where Graham emerged as the clear winner twice. So, once again, the expectant supermodel has cemented her GOAT status.
You may be wondering two things: How did Vonn and Graham end up working out together, and where is this gym, so I can join? Judging by social media posts, it would appear that the two women share the same trainer, Kira Stokes, who wrote on her Instagram page, “@lindseyvonn & @ashleygraham BOTH deserve a gold medal for today’s stellar session… forever grateful to have the chance to work with such inspiring women.”
Of course, Graham didn’t pass up the change for a little humble brag on her profile. Sharing videos of her beast-mode workout, she wrote: “That’s right, I beat Lindsay Vonn on the ski erg TWICE,” before giving due credit to Vonn too. “But she still beat me at literally everything else. You’re still the pro athlete, Lindsey!”
As for Vonn, she — like pretty much everyone else right now — couldn’t help but be amazed by the “amazingly fit, very pregnant and incredibly beautiful supermodel in the gym,” calling Graham “a stud.”
Graham, who announced her pregnancy in August, has been sharing her journey with refreshing candor on social media. Just days after revealing her good news, she posted a nude selfie showing off all of her quote-unquote “imperfections” (and, rightly so, received a ton of positive feedback for it). Last month, she enlisted fans’ help in pointing her toward maternity clothes that would go over her burgeoning bump.
Now, she’s killing it at the gym, defeating Olympic gold medalists at their own sport in the process. Vonn’s right: Graham really is a stud. That’s one lucky kid along for the ride.
