Lindsey Vonn is Back on SkisBy Michael Frank on January 4th, 2013
Lindsey Vonn is feeling better and has returned to Europe to train. Vonn started training for a return to the World Cup circuit after a midseason break to recover from an intestinal illness. Rainer Salzgeber, the racing director of Vonn’s equipment supplier Head, told the Associated Press that the four-time overall winner arrived in Austria on Wednesday and began light training on Thursday. He said Vonn plans to race in the downhill and Super G on January 12-13 in St. Anton, Austria. Vonn has not competed since falling in the opening run of a giant slalom December 16 in Courchevel, France. U.S. women’s head coach Alex Hoedlmoser wouldn’t confirm Vonn’s return in St. Anton. Regardless, a return at the Austria events would mean Vonn will miss a total of six races, leaving little chance of defending her overall title. Via Aspen Times.
