Lindsey Vonn is back on skis. The four-time World Cup overall champion and defending 2010 Winter Olympics Downhill gold medal winner said she felt good after a training session in Portillo, Chile. She plans to return to competition in time for the women’s World Cup in Beaver Creek, Colorado, Nov. 29 – Dec. 1 2013. “If I start off slow, it’s fine. I want to make sure that by the time I get to Sochi that I’m 100% in those events.”
In February, Vonn crashed at the world championships, tearing her ACL and MCL and suffering a fractured tibial plateau in her right knee. “I can’t tell which knee is injured – that’s a good sign,” she said.
