Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods have become one of the world's highest-profile athlete-couples since they started dating back in January. And despite Woods' horrible track record, Vonn says that her life with the pro-golfer is "awesome."

"I love it," the Olympic skiier told People on Thursday.

"There's really nothing about him that bothers me," she said. "He doesn't even leave the seat up! It's awesome."

Vonn, who also finalized her divorce with Thomas Vonn in January, added that her life has done a "complete 180" since the last Winter Olympics in Vancouver.

"I went from being married to living on my own in L.A., to having a new boyfriend and just being totally self-sufficient and super independent," she said.

The 28-year-old also underwent reconstructive knee surgery after a serious injury at the World Cup in Austria last February. After months of rehabilitation and gym training, Vonn has been given the OK to get back on her skies in preparation for the 2014 Olympics in Sochi.

"Physically I'm 100% now," she told USA Today. "I've been in the gym far too long. I'm ready to be out in the fresh air."

"My main focus is definitely on the Olympics," she added. "If I start off slow, it's fine. I want to make sure that by the time I get to Sochi that I'm 100 percent in those events."

So will Woods get to see her in Russia?

"We're going to see how his schedule goes, but he's hoping to come," she said. "He's kind of a fish out of water in the cold weather. It's going to be really cute!"
