Lindsey Vonn‘s comeback took a hit Tuesday when she crashed during a downhill training run at Copper Mountain in Colorado. She injured her knee as a result of the spill, according to SkiRacing.com, though it was not specified whether it was the same knee that she injured in February’s world championships. The two-time Olympic medalist was taken down the mountain on a sled and transported to a local hospital for evaluation, U.S. Ski Team spokesman Tom Kelly told The Associated Press. “We have no reason to believe it’s anything significant right now,” Kelly told the AP. Vonn has competed in each of the last three Winter Olympiads, winning bronze in Super-G and gold in downhill at the 2010 Games in Vancouver. She was expected to make her return to competitive racing Thanksgiving weekend at Beaver Creek. @SkiRacingMag Lindsey Vonn after her crash this morning at Copper http://t.co/AGedtVQmR4— Maris (@Maris_Claire) November 19, 2013Filed under: Headlines, NESN Staff, Olympics
