Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn and husband Thomas Vonn are calling it quits after four years of marriage.

"It is with great sadness that I announce that Thomas and I have begun divorce proceedings," Lindsey, 27, says in a statement to The Denver Post.

"This is an extremely difficult time in my personal life and I hope the media and my fans can respect my need for privacy on this matter. I will continue to be coached by the U.S. Ski Team and look forward to competing the rest of the season."

Thomas, 35, a former Olympic skier, was also Lindsey's coach.

The couple wed in Deer Valley, Utah in September 2007.
