Lindsey Vonn Out for Alpine Ski Racing Season

By February 5, 2013

Follow me on:

Lindsey Vonn crashed during the opening day Super G at the FIS Alpine Ski World Championships. She was immediately attended to by race medical officials and transported by helicopter, as is standard protocol, to a nearby hospital where she was evaluated and released.

According to U.S. Ski Team Medical Director Kyle Wilkens, Vonn suffered a torn ACL and MCL in her right knee and a lateral tibial plateau fracture. She will be out for the remainder of this season but is expected to return to racing for the 2013-14 Audi FIS World Cup season and the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.
