Lindsey Vonn: I Will compete in 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics
Lindsey Vonn, said on Wednesday (Feb 6) that she plans to compete in the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, which start in 12 months.
She was released from the hospital late Tuesday and returned to the team hotel. You’ll recall celebessence.com, Vonn was airlifted to the hospital after tearing her anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament in her right knee during a crash while competing in the world championships in Austria.
“I am grateful to my fans for the outpouring of support, which has really helped me stay positive,” Vonn said in a statement. “I can assure you that I will work as hard as humanly possible to be ready to represent my country next year in Sochi.” Says Vonn
The Olympic downhill champion will have surgery next week in Vail, Colorado. Because of intense media attention, neither she nor the U.S. Ski Team would say when she’s leaving Austria. “She’ll be heading back to Vail (Colorado) and I will be doing surgery on her knee early next week,” team physician William Sterett told The Associated Press on Wednesday.
“Lindsey is doing well,” said Sterett, who has been treating Vonn since her youth. “She’s in good spirits.” Sterett would not set a return date to skiing for Vonn until after the surgery, but other doctors believe she will be sidelined for up to eight months.
The U.S. team said the four-time overall champion will be back in time for the next World Cup season. The accident happened after Vonn landed a jump in the opening super-G race at the championships. As she hit the ground, her right leg gave way and she spun forward. She ended up on her back as she smashed through a gate.
Good luck with the operation our dear Lindsey and we hope to have you back on the ice soonest.
