Vonn to skip St. Moritz, return on Dec. 21
PARK CITY, Utah (AP) -- The U.S. Ski Team says Lindsey Vonn will skip this
weekend's World Cup races in St. Moritz, Switzerland, and is planning to
compete in a downhill on Dec. 21 at Val d'Isere, France.
Vonn returned to racing last week at Lake Louise, Alberta, 10 months after
tearing two ligaments in her right knee and breaking a bone in that leg during
a crash at the world championships.
She finished 40th in her season debut Friday, a downhill, then 11th in another
downhill Saturday, and fifth in a super-G on Sunday.
The 29-year-old American, who won two medals at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics,
said Sunday she would work with her coaches to figure out a schedule leading up
to the Sochi Games, which start in less than two months.
