PLAYERS: Lindsey Vonn
Will Lindsey Vonn return in time for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi? They begin in less than a year. And if you want to see how damaged her knees are take a look at the Lindsey Vonn Instagram pics of her legs after the jump. (As long as you’re not squeamish) “My knee looks…um…not very good…. #longskirtsthissummer #ugh” she instagrammed. You can see it on her Facebook page too. Vonn was airlifted to safety during a crash 8 days ago that caused major damage to her right knee at the Super G World Championships. Lindsey Vonn tore her anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments. She also fractured the tibial plateau. See the crash. (as long as you’re not faint of heart) Vonn maybe the most accomplished skier in U.S. history. This is the sixth straight major championship in which Vonn has been hit with injuries. And you know, given her track record that she will work as hard as humanly possible to make it to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. This hasn’t been the best ye...

  • Must be the year of the Torn ACL? My 16 y/o son the day before Lindsey had her accident while at ski racing practice tore his ACL, prematurely ending his season. He just had the ACL repair surgery Wednesday, patellar tendon w/bone plugs. He's off all pain meds, CPM 2 hrs on/ 1hr. ice/CPM 2hrs. for a total 8 hrs per day, 4 hrs. ice. CPM today adjusted to 0-60 degrees hopefully next Friday's follow up he'll be at 90 degrees and ready to commence P/T. Fortunate to have such quality sports orthopedic surgeons in Boston area. The Celtics apparently have a pandemic this year as well with ACL injuries Too! All the best Lindsey, 10 months and you'll be back racing!
