NEW YORK — Skiing star Lindsey Vonn has revealed to People magazine that she struggled with depression, and was prescribed an antidepressant to treat the condition.

In the latest issue of the magazine, the 28-year-old Vonn says that in 2008, "I couldn't get out of bed. I felt hopeless, empty, like a zombie. I couldn't even cry any more."

Her then-husband, Thomas Vonn, encouraged Lindsey to seek treatment and she went to see a doctor. She describes in the interview how it seemed her life was perfect but "behind the scenes, it was a struggle."

In World Cup competition on Friday, Vonn's bid for a fifth straight victory in speed events ended with a crash in Val d'Isere, France. She was not available afterward.
