St Moritz, Switzerland (CNN) A number of US athletes have spoken out against Donald Trump during his presidency -- and skier Lindsey Vonn has become the latest to have her say.
Targeting Olympic gold at February's Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, Vonn is in St. Moritz, Switzerland, where she spoke passionately about what it means to compete for the US ski team.
"Well I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president," Vonn told CNN's Alpine Edge.

The 33-year-old Vonn is getting ready for the final act of a long and illustrious career.
As well as competing for a second Olympic gold medal in South Korea, she is attempting to break the record of 86 World Cup victories held by Ingemar Stenmark since 1989.
Away from the slopes, Vonn also appears willing to put her head above the parapet and speak out about US politics.
"I take the Olympics very seriously and what they mean and what they represent, what walking under our flag means in the opening ceremony," she added.
"I want to represent our country well. I don't think that there are a lot of people currently in our government that do that."

This year Trump has been embroiled in a controversy with the NFL and some of the NBA's top players -- a spat with significant racial and cultural undertones -- after he blasted prominent athletes for kneeling during the national anthem and refusing to come to the White House.
And Vonn revealed she wouldn't accept an invitation to the White House if she were to win gold at Pyeongchang.
"Absolutely not," said Vonn. "No. But I have to win to be invited. No actually I think every US team member is invited so no I won't go.
Skiing's speed queen
The world's greatest female ski racer Lindsey Vonn has announced the forthcoming ski World Cup season will be her last. Here's a look at her glittering career to date.
She made her Olympic debut at Salt Lake City 2002 as a 17-year-old, finishing 32nd in slalom and sixth in the combined slalom/downhill event.
Lindsey Kildow -- as she was then before marrying fellow skier Thomas Vonn -- won her first World Cup race with victory in the downhill at Lake Louise, Canada, in 2004.
In 2005, Vonn signed with Red Bull and began working with a completely new coaching team. She seemed set for the start of something special.
Any momentum from the new deal was slowed during the 2006 Olympics in Italy, though. A fall in practice resulted in a short stay in hospital. She recovered in time to compete but could only manage seventh in the Super G and eighth in the downhill events.
However, Vonn quickly bounced back and won the first of three straight World Cup titles in 2008 at the age of 23.
Golden girl Vonn achieved her Olympic dreams in 2010. She won the Olympic downhill gold at Whistler and added bronze in the super-G.
Vonn added a fourth World Cup title in 2012, but is still behind Annemarie Moser-Proell's record of six overall crystal globes.
Vonn's public profile went galactic when she dated star golfer Tiger Woods for two years between 2013 and 2015.
In 2013, Vonn suffered an horrific crash at the World Championships in Austria. She underwent reconstructive knee surgery and began a long road to recovery. She attempted to return a year later, only to pull out of the 2014 Olympics after aggravating the injury again.
Injuries continued to hamper Vonn. She fractured her left knee in February 2016 in a crash during a World Cup super-G race in Soldeu, Andorra, but raced the combined event the next day before calling an end to her season.
Vonn worked hard to get back in time to challenge for gold medals at the 2018 Winter Olympics. The American left PyeongChang with just a bronze medal in the downhill but insisted she was proud to have made it through her injuries.
Vonn announced the forthcoming ski World Cup season will be her last. She is already the most successful woman in World Cup history with 82 victories. She now has Ingemar Stenmark's overall World Cup record of 86 victories in her sights.

Pyeongchang will be Vonn's first Games since Vancouver 2010, where her downhill triumph turned her into a global star and one of the world's best-paid winter athletes with a net worth, according to Forbes, of about $3 million.
Vonn has battled with a number of serious injuries throughout her career, including a knee injury in 2013 that kept her out of the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

Last year, she broke her arm and sustained nerve damage during a preseason training crash in the US, delaying the start of her season until January.
Vonn endured an underwhelming start to the new season, crashing out of last week's opening downhill event at Lake Louise.
