Vonn to skip World Cup race in St. Moritz, return Dec. 21
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.
