Well, ski champ Lindsey Vonn had a scary crash today during the Alpine Ski World Championships in Austria. The doctor treating the 28-year-old says she has a complex torn ligament in her right knee. The U.S. ski team says Vonn will be out for the rest of the season. They do say they expect her back in time for the 2014 Olympic Games. You may say that’s so far away.
Well, Dr. Sabrina Strickland of the Hospital for Special Surgery talked to us today and said it’s a devastating injury that usually takes nine to 12 months for an elite athlete like Vonn to get back to a full level of training after something like this.
