Lindsey Vonn Hospitalized After Crash

U.S. Ski Team cham­pi­on ski­er Lind­sey Vonn was air­lift­ed to the hos­pi­tal after crash­ing on the Super‑G course in The World Cham­pi­onship in Aus­tria this morn­ing. The video above shows Vonn attempt­ing to land a jump, lose her bal­ance, and tum­ble down a hill, los­ing a ski in the process. Accord­ing to the U.S. ski team med­ical direc­tor Kyle Wilkens, Vonn sus­tained a torn ACL and MCL in her right knee and a lat­er­al tib­ial plateau fracture.

While these injuries and their recov­ery will require Vonn to miss the rest of the sea­son, it’s expect­ed that she’ll be able to com­pete in the 2013–14 World Cup sea­son and the 2014 Olympic Win­ter Games in Sochi.
