Skier Lindsey Vonn Tears Knee

Just 10 days before she was supposed to compete for the first time since tearing her ACL and MCL in a February crash in Austria, Lindsey Vonn partially tore her ACL in her right knee. The injury happened during a crash while the skiier was training at Copper Mountain in Colorado. She also has a mild strain in her right knee, minor facial abrasions, and a bruised shoulder blade. What now? According to a statement released by her publicist, Vonn, who had hoped to compete in the Sochi Olympics, will “pursue aggressive physical therapy and will determine the next time she is able to compete.” The popular Olympic skier is the defending champion in the women’s downhill and the most successful female ski racer in U.S. history.
