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)

Lindsey Vonn Struggles with Injury; Wins Sportswoman of the Year Award

lindsey_vonn

American skier Lindsey Vonn is experiencing the epitome of good news, bad news today. The head injury she suffered severely held her back at the beginning of the downhill skiing season; as her season is going downhill (pun intended). On the flip side, she won an international sportswoman of the year award.

From USA Today:

Lindsey Vonn is clearly not her normal self. Perhaps more worrying, the Olympic downhill champion isn’t sure when she’ll be fully recovered from her head injury.

Attempting to defend her title, Vonn finished a dismal seventh in the super-G that opened the world championships Tuesday, crossing 0.84 seconds behind Austrian winner Elisabeth Goergl.

Vonn lost time at each checkpoint and became increasingly shaky as she went down. On the bottom half of the icy and shady Kandahar course, the American was uncharacteristically wild and struggled simply to maintain her line.

Lindsey Vonn is Golden!

American skier Lindsey Vonn won gold in women’s downhill today. So much for the injury! The best part of this development? We get to publish more pictures of Lindsey Vonn and that augments this site’s SEO.
