Vonn still 'resting' after crash as she approaches last race

February 7, 2019

ARE, Sweden (AP) — Lindsey Vonn is sitting out downhill training again, two days after her crash in the super-G at the world championships.

Vonn got the wind knocked out of her after hitting the safety nets and was left with bruises on her face and a puffy right eye .

Vonn's spokeswoman Claire Abbe tells The Associated Press, "She's good, just resting. She'll plan to run the course again for sure before Sunday."

The 34-year-old Vonn has announced she will retire after Sunday's downhill.


She already completed one downhill training run on Monday — meaning that technically she does not need to start another one to race.

Conditions for Thursday's training runs — for men and women — were much warmer than earlier in the week, at minus-4 degrees (25 F).
