Lindsay Vonn Airlifted After Crash

Lindsay Vonn Airlifted After Crash

( 4UMF NEWS ) Lindsay Vonn Airlifted After Crash:

Champion ski racer Lindsey Vonn wrecked her knee in a gruesome crash while racing in Austria Tuesday, one year before the 2014 Winter Olympics.

Vonn tore both the ACL and MCL in her right knee and suffered a fracture of the lateral tibial plateau, according to U.S. Ski Team medical director Kyle Wilkens. The team addressed Vonn’s injury in a statement promising that Vonn would return to the sport.

“She will be out for the remainder of this season but is expected to return to racing for the 2013-14 Audi FIS World Cup season and the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi,” the team said of Vonn’s injury, which occurred as she competed at the world championships in Schladming, Austria.

The 28-year-old from Minnesota is the reigning Olympic downhill champion. Her pursuit of several long-term records in her sport is now on hold for surgery and rehabilitation. She has returned from injuries in the past, though none quite this extreme.

Only 36 of 59 racers ran the course before organizers ended the race, making Slovenia’s Tina Maze, the world’s top-ranked skier, the world champion in super G. Julia Mancuso of the United States was third, behind Switzerland’s Lara Gut. At the time of the crash, Vonn trailed Maze by 0.12 seconds. Mancuso said after the race that it was “really hard” to continue after watching her teammate Vonn tumble down the slope.

Vonn was a third of the way into the course when her leg buckled while landing a jump. Vonn tumbled over head-first and was treated on the hill for 12 minutes before being airlifted to an area hospital for treatment. The day’s race had been postponed repeatedly because of weather-related problems like poor visibility.

“It’s not a very difficult course, but in some parts you couldn’t see anything,” Swiss skier Fabienne Suter told The Associated Press.
