Parker McDonald is the luckiest high-school sophomore in America.

The 16-year-old Nordic skier asked Lindsey Vonn, an American Olympic gold medalist for alpine ski racing, to the Vail Ski and Snowboard Academy's homecoming dance Friday night.

And she said, Yes!

The 27-year-old World Cup champion was visiting the academy in Minturn, Colo., when Parker approached her with the question in the cafeteria.

Yesterday I visited the Vail Ski and Snowboard Academy and while I was eating lunch with all the students a [16] year old boy named Parker asked me if I would be his date for their homecoming dance, which is tonight, Vonn wrote on her Facebook page. When Parker asked me he was cute, nervous and very polite so of course I said YES! :) All through school growing up I never got the chance to go to a school dance so I'm excited for tonight!

McDonald didn't seem too stressed about the question, according to the Vail Daily.

I thought, 'I need a date, and there's Lindsey Vonn. I'll ask her!' McDonald said. She walked by my lunch table and I whipped out the question.

I asked her because she's awesome! he told the Vail Daily.

Vonn is in Minturn training with the U.S. Ski Team. Vonn is an American alpine ski racer and has won three consecutive World Cup championships. She is the first American woman to accomplish this feat. As of last March, Vonn had a total of 41 World Cup wins in downhill, Super G, slalom, and super combined skiing.
