(CBS) Olympic skiing star Lindsey Vonn has become close to Tim Tebow’s family, leading some to believe she is dating the Broncos’ quarterback.

But Vonn, who watched the Bears’ overtime loss to the Broncos Sunday from Tebow’s family box, says they are just friends.

In a column she wrote for the Denver Post, Vonn explained:

A lot of people are wondering what’s up with me and the Tebows. I’m just friends with the family … I pretty much know their whole family now. They’re great people. It’s pretty awesome to be able to hang out with them — and to be able to witness the amazing things Tim and the Broncos can do.

Tebow’s brother, Robby, watched Vonn win the World Cup super-G title last week in Colorado, but she says she’s not dating him either. After winning the race, Vonn celebrated by, well, Tebowing.

Vonn took to Twitter to reiterate her relationship with the Tebows even after the column was posted:
