VAIL, CO (Nov. 20) - Olympic gold medalist and four-time Audi FIS Alpine World Cup overall champion Lindsey Vonn (Vail, CO) sustained a mild strain to her right knee, a partial tear to her right ACL, minor facial abrasions and scapular contusions as a result of a downhill training fall Tuesday on the U.S. Ski Team Speed Center at Copper Mountain. Vonn plans to rest for a few days before pursuing physical therapy. U.S. Ski Team Medical Director Kyle Wilkens reported her response to the therapy would ultimately determine the timetable for her return to active training.
