Lindsey Vonn is about to start training in Europe as she prepares for a possible return from right knee surgery at next week's World Cup opener.

ON THE SCENE

U.S. Ski Team women's head coach Alex Hoedlmoser tells The Associated Press that Vonn was set to arrive in Austria on Monday and planned to train on snow beginning Tuesday.

The opening race of the season is the giant slalom in Soelden, Austria, on Oct. 26.

Hoedlmoser says: "If she feels like she can podium then she's probably going to (race)."

However, the coach adds that it's "totally a day-by-day decision."

Vonn shredded her anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in a crash at the world championships in Schladming, Austria, last February. She started snow training again in Chile at the start of September.
