Lindsey Vonn may have been airlifted from the Austrian race hill where she had a horrific ski accident on Tuesday. But that's not the way she was going to be transported anymore if Tiger Woods had anything to do with it.
TMZ is reporting that a woman who resembles Vonn was photographed on crutches hobbling up the stairs of Woods' private plane. The gossip site claims that Vonn boarded Woods' private aircraft — which he allowed his rumored girlfriend to use to fly out of Austria after the crashing during the Alpine World Championships earlier this week. The Olympic skier reportedly boarded the jet in Salzburg Friday morning.
While there was some speculation that Woods might show up in Austria to support Vonn in her quest to win her fifth straight Super G title, Vonn has claimed that she and the golfer are "just friends."
The champions skier injured two knee ligaments in a crash on the first day of the championships and is planning to return to the U.S. for reconstructive surgery.
There is a chance Vonn's injuries could keep out of the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.
