    Lindsey Vonn made her Olympic dreams come true in Vancouver – and now, she's getting her TV wish granted as well.

    The skiing star will appear on "Law & Order," her favorite show, Access Hollywood has learned.

    She'll join the show's season finale as Alicia, an administrative assistant who "provides a vital clue" in a case involving a terrorist, NBC reps told Access.

    "Throughout Lindsey's remarkable Olympic experience, she was very supportive of 'Law & Order' and has already been to the set as a visitor," show creator and executive producer Dick Wolf said in a statement to Access. "We are glad that we can make her dream of appearing on the show come true."

    Lindsey will film her part on Friday, April 9.

    "I honestly couldn't be more excited about being on 'Law & Order,'" Lindsey told Access in a statement. "How many people get to appear on their favorite TV show?"

    That isn't the only place she's appeared since her Olympic victories – the athlete is one of three Olympians to earn her own Wheaties box, along with snowboarding gold medalists Shaun White and Seth Wescott.
