Lindsey Vonn delaying return to skiing, still hopeful for Olympics
Olympic downhill skier Lindsey Vonn is pushing back her return to the sport, after injuring her knee at a competition in Austria back in February. Vonn has been practicing for a race at Soelden, which serves as the skiing season opener.
"My training camp in Soelden went very well and I made great progress, but I feel that I need more training before I start racing again," she writes on Facebook, "which means the Soelden race is not in the cards this year."
Instead, Lindsey will continue to practice with the goal of returning November 29 at the upcoming races in Beaver Creek, Col. Of course, what's more important is February, when Vonn hopes to back in top form for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
