Will Lindsey Vonn return in time for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi? They begin in less than a year. And if you want to see how damaged her knees are take a look at the Lindsey Vonn Instagram pics of her legs after the jump. (As long as you’re not squeamish)
“My knee looks…um…not very good…. #longskirtsthissummer #ugh” she instagrammed. You can see it on her Facebook page too.
Vonn was airlifted to safety during a crash 8 days ago that caused major damage to her right knee at the Super G World Championships. Lindsey Vonn tore her anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments. She also fractured the tibial plateau. See the crash. (as long as you’re not faint of heart)
Vonn maybe the most accomplished skier in U.S. history. This is the sixth straight major championship in which Vonn has been hit with injuries. And you know, given her track record that she will work as hard as humanly possible to make it to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
This hasn’t been the best year healthwise for the recently divorced Vonn. Which reminds me, her name is Lindsey Kildow now. A couple months ago she was hospitalized to undergo many tests. It was a scary experience. However, she recovered from a midseason break due to an intestinal illness.
