Lindsey_vonn As if earning a gold medal wasn’t enough, skier Lindsey Vonn is about to enter the record books for another reason. That is, if there was a record book that kept track of guest stars on TV shows.

The darling of the Vancouver Olympics is going from one downhill slope to another. She will appear in the final episode of NBC’s longstanding drama “Law & Order,” which closes its final case tonight.

In the show, Vonn plays an administrative assistant at a teachers' union who, aside from wearing chic glasses, tries to help Detectives Cyrus Lupo (Jeremy Sisto) and Kevin Bernard (Anthony Anderson) find an anonymous blogger who threatens to blow up a school.

According to the New York Daily News, Vonn is a huge fan of the series and was cast after creator Dick Wolf read she was a fan.

Check it out  to see if her work on the show is a match for her moves:
