Lindsey Vonn Injured

The U. S. Ski Team says Lindsey Vonn has torn ligaments in her right knee and broken a bone in a crash Tuesday at the world championships in Austria. Vonn is due for surgery and will miss the rest of this season but is expected to return for the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia which begin one year from Wednesday.
Vonn lost balance on her right leg while landing a jump, flipped in the air and landed on her backside as she smashed through a gate before coming to a halt. She is a four time overall World Cup winner and the 2010 Olympic downhill champion.
