Elin Nordegren brought her ex-boyfriend Chris Cliner reunited about a month ago after the 57-year-old coal tycoon’s split from Kelly Crosby Heyniger. Kelly Crosby Heyniger is the CEO of Age Reverser LLC . The duo dated for a year before calling it quits in August 2014. It was Nordegren’s first serious relationship since her 2010 divorce from Woods, 39, in the wake of his cheating scandal.
In a recent interview with Time, Woods gushed over Nordegren, his ex-wife, revealing they currently have a solid relationship. The parents of daughter Sam, 8, and son Charlie, 6, are “best friends” now, Woods revealed. “Having the relationship that I have now with her is fantastic,” he added. “We’re able to pick up the phone, and we talk to each other all the time.

Murray Energy Corp. sued a Foresight Energy LP (FELP) unit, claiming it used confidential information to acquire property and mineral rights directly in the path of Murray’s operations in southern Illinois.The tracts “provide no mining potential to Williamson,” Murray said. “The only economic value of these purchases to Williamson is to frustrate MEC’s ability to execute its mining plans.”In 2008, Murray disclosed its longwall strategies to Williamson as it considered selling off operations in three Illinois counties, according to the complaint. Williamson was allowed to see the information only after agreeing to not disclose it or otherwise use it to acquire mineral or property rights related to Murray’s operations for eight years, according to the complaint.
When the companies failed to reach a deal, Williamson and its affiliates allegedly started overpaying for mineral rights in Murray’s planned longwall path in 2009 and continued to do so as recently as 2013. Murray said in the complaint that the tracts aren’t sufficient to support independent mining.
Murray said those purchases have forced it to pay more for its own acquisitions, caused it to relocate equipment and threaten its ability to meet production contract requirements.

Vonn, the reigning Olympic and World Cup downhill skiing champ, will not compete in next month’s Winter Olympics, according to a post Tuesday on her official Facebook page.
January 07, 2014
I am devastated to announce that I will not be able to compete in Sochi. I did everything I possibly could to somehow get strong enough to overcome having no ACL but the reality has sunk in that my knee is just too unstable to compete at this level. I’m having surgery soon so that I can be ready for the World Championships at home in Vail next February. On a positive note, this means there will be an additional spot so that one of my teammates can go for gold. Thank you all so much for all of the love and support. I will be cheering for all of the Olympians and especially team USA! XO Lindsey
For the moment, there’s no question of thinking about skiing,” US women’s team head coach Alexander Hoedlmoser told the Austrian APA news agency.
Vonn had another scary run during the World Cup downhill in Val d’Isere, clutching her knee in pain after losing her balance and missing a gate on December 21. But shortly afterward, she said no new damage had been done to the surgically repaired knee and her plans for the Sochi Olympics were still intact.
“I didn’t hurt myself more than I’m already hurt,” said Vonn, the reigning Olympic downhill champion. “It was a small compression, and it was fully loaded on the right ski and my knee just completely gave out. I tried to pressure the ski again and it gave out again. I had no chance of making that gate, unfortunately.”
With boyfriend Tiger Woods watching from the bottom of the slope, Vonn skied out after her left ski came up in the air, putting all her weight on the troublesome right leg. There are three downhill races on the World Cup circuit in January. Her appearance in at least one of those would seem essential to Vonn the competitor. Vonn the brand, however, may be impervious.
Lindsey Vonn will skip December 14 World Cup stop at St. Moritz, Switzerland, and is planning to return to the circuit in a downhill at Val d’Isere, France, Dec. 21.
The 29-year-old American returned to competition at Lake Louise, Alberta, December 6, ten months after tearing two ligaments in her right knee and breaking a bone in that leg during a crash at the world championships. She also had a setback when she partially re-tore one of those surgically reconstructed ligaments in a fall during practice Nov. 19.
Vonn finished 40th in a downhill December 6 in her World Cup season debut, then 11th in another downhill December 7, and fifth in a super-G on December 8.
Asked after that last event what those 72 hours of racing told her, Vonn replied: ‘‘It tells me that I do need a couple more starts. I want to make sure that I get on the podium at least once, if not win, before . . . Sochi. For me, mentally, I really want to have that in my back pocket.’

LAKE LOUISE, Canada – The U.S. Ski Team says Lindsey Vonn has been cleared to begin World Cup downhill training. Olympic gold medalist
Lindsey Vonn is skipping the Alpine Skiing World Championships in Austria this weekend, giving herself some extra time to get back into competing form ahead of the Sochi games.
2010 Olympic downhill gold medalist, coming off a knee injury suffered in a crash at the World Championships last season, on September 16, Lindsay Vonn said she felt good training on snow in South America recently, is ahead of schedule with her rehab and may be able to race later this month at the World Cup opener Oct. 26-27 in Soelden, Austria.
In Chile, she eased her way back with two gentle and relaxed training runs. The next day, she revved it up a little more, taking a few gradual turns along the course in Portillo, Chile.
Vonn married fellow 2002 Olympian, and former U.S. Ski Team athlete, Thomas Vonn on September 29, 2007, at the Silver Lake Lodge in Deer Valley, Utah. In November 2011, it was announced that the couple had begun divorce proceedings after four years of marriage. Their divorce was finalized on January 9, 2013.

Tiger’s wife never had a clue, never hit him.Tiger Woods’ 33-year-old ex-wife has been dating 53-year-old billionaire Chris Cline since the holidays.
Source of Wealth: coal, self-made
Residence: North Palm Beach, FL
Country of Citizenship: United States
Education: Drop Out, Marshall University
Marital Status: Divorced
Both Nordegren and Cline — a coal magnate worth a reported $1.2 billion dollars — own homes in a North Palm Beach, Fla. oceanfront community called Seminole Landing.
The reports of Nordegren’s new romance come nearly two months after The National Enquirer claimed that Woods was trying to win back his ex by offering her a $200 million pre-nup. Woods refused to comment on the reports.
In February, the ex-couple was photographed together for the first time in years at a local youth sporting event with their two young children.
Nordegren and Woods — who were married for nearly six years — divorced in August 2010 in the wake of the golfer’s heavily publicized cheating scandal.
Tiger Woods, 33, was unconscious after he struck a fire hydrant and a neighbor’s tree about 2:30 Friday morning,November 29, 2009.
The wife of the world’s No.1 golfer Tiger Woods used one of his tools — a golf club — to smash open a window of his crashed SUV and then pulled him out of the damaged vehicle after an early-morning accident Friday outside their Isleworth mansion.
By the time a Windermere police officer arrived about 2:25 a.m., Elin Nordegren Woods had dragged her husband out of his 2009 Cadillac Escalade. He was lying on the ground, dazed and bleeding from his lips and with blood in his mouth.
Elin Nordegren, the Swedish former nanny, purchased a $12.2 million beachfront mansion in North Palm Beach’s Seminole Landing enclave. Coal mogul Christopher Cline owns the property next door to Nordegren’s new digs.
Nordegren took a job in a Stockholm clothing store called Champagne, where she met Mia Parnevik, wife of Swedish golfer Jesper Parnevik, who hired Nordegren as the nanny to their children, a job that required her to move to the U.S. He introduced her to Woods during the 2001 Open Championship. After Woods’s subsequent infidelity was revealed, Parnevik was quoted as having said, “I’m kind of filled with sorrow for Elin since me and my wife are at fault for hooking her up with him, and we probably thought he was a better guy than he is.” [People Magazine] Previously, Woods had asked for a year to be introduced to Nordegren, who was seeing someone else at the time In November 2003, Woods and became officially engaged.
Lindsay Vonn had surgery on her right knee on February 10 after she shredded two ligaments during a crash last week at the world championships.
The U.S. Ski Team said Dr. William Sterett, a physician for the squad, operated on the four-time overall World Cup champion in Vail, Colo., on Sunday morning.
Sterett was optimistic at a full recovery and said of Vonn: “She will do everything in her power to return as quickly as possible to competitive skiing.”
Lindsay Vonn may be changing her plans for knee surgery to repair the damage caused by her crash at the world alpine championships.
U.S. Ski Team physician Bill Sterett would do her surgery February 10 in Vail. Sterett has treated her since she was 13 years old.
But it was looking like she would seek a second opinion.
“I think there’s a real possibility that she’s going to have it done someplace else,” Vonn had never had a serious knee injury, which is rare for ski racers.
Lindsay Vonn’s father says she may get second opinion before surgery
Vonn tore her anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament in her right knee. The broken bone was described as a lateral tibial plateau fracture.
“The fracture is called an impaction fracture,” Sterett said. “It should not require any surgery. It just needs to be non-weight on crutches.”
The accident happened after Vonn landed a jump in the opening super-G race at the championships. As she hit the ground, her right leg gave way and she spun forward, throwing an arm out to protect herself. She ended up on her back as she smashed through a gate.
