Lindsey Vonn entered the Vancouver Olympics fresh off appearing in a Sports Illustrated cover photo that some (although just 8% of HuffPost readers) found controversial, and she was soon nursing a shin injury with an unusual treatment -- Austrian cheese.

The American skier quickly laid all doubts to rest, however, earning a gold medal in her first race of the 2010 Winter Games. She followed that performance with a bronze in the super-G. This week she'll get two cracks at more medals when she competes in the slalom and giant slalom.

But just how does Vonn ski so well? John Brenkus and the "Sport Science" team took at her technique to explain how she can overcome 6 G's of force and get down the course faster than anyone else. Scroll down for video.
