Lindsey Vonn Returns to Skiing After Knee Injury


Vail local and infamous dater of professional golfers Lindsey Vonn returned to skiing this Sunday in Portillo, Chile seven months after a brutal crash tore both her MCL and ACL while fracturing the tibial plateau in her right knee. Taking just a few mellow runs on beginner terrain, Vonn was looking and feeling strong, and is expected to be able to train some gate racing by the end of her two-week training camp in Chile with the US women's speed team. Vonn is the US's top female contender for the Sochi Olympics, and is on track to return to the race course at the World Cup in Beaver Creek at the end of November.

For those of you who haven't gotten your daily bit of celebrity gossip yet, you'll be pleased to hear that Vonn and Tiger Woods are still dating, although they are apparently not planning on getting married. So there's that...
