Obligatory. Lindsey Vonn had surgery this past Sunday to repair her torn right ACL and MCL following a horrific crash that came in a Super-G race in Austria the week before. Doctors are confident that Vonn, an Olympic gold medal winner at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, should make a full recovery with aggressive rehabilitation, and that she should be able to return to competitive skiing at some point. I’m no kneeologist, but after seeing how awful her surgically repaired knee looks, I’m not so sure I concur with Vonn’s surgeons… Vonn’s gorgeous gams ain’t so gorgeous anymore. Although this isn’t the first time we’ve seen post-operative photos following terrible sports accidents, the shock value will always be there. You think you would be immune to the ghastly sight of a swollen, bruised knee with a couple of surgical scars on it, but you’re not, and unless you’re an orthopedic surgeon or combat medic, you probably never will be. Enjoy your dinner. [@lindseyvonn] The post This post-op picture of Lindsey Vonn’s messed up leg reminds us that knee injuries are never good appeared first on Last Angry Fan.
