Lindsey Vonn has hung up her competitive skis, but the world-renowned superstar will still have a huge footprint in the sporting community. She was announced on Tuesday by none other than Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) as the first ambassador for his Under Armour brand, Project Rock.

Johnson made the announcement via Twitter with a video in which he praised Vonn for her history of fighting through adversity and noted she fits the criteria of Project Rock and Dwayne Johnson Training.

The financial details of this partnership are not known, but we can be confident in saying Vonn’s incredible marketability will garner her a significant financial windfall.
