Injury May Sideline Olympic Hopeful Lindsey Vonn
Posted by Nancy on February 11, 2010
Sadly, one of the outstanding hopefuls for the U.S., Lindsey Vonn, has disclosed that she has incured an injury that could curtail her Olympic dream. During a slalom training run a week ago Vonn sustained a bad bruise and subsequent swelling to her right shin which has left her questioning whether her body is going to allow her to fully participate in the winter games. This is shocking news to fans and sponsors (Red Bull, Rolex) who expected Vonn to have a good chance of cleaning up in the medals race, especially for the downhill and the superG.
26 year old Vonn is a two time and current reigning overall World Cup champion. This injury puts a real damper on things but mentally Vonn is a warrior and she has every intention of giving it all she’s got.
