Just eight months after tearing two ligaments in her right knee when she crashed on a Super-G run in Austria, Lindsey Vonn posted pictures to her Twitter and Facebook pages from the European country’s slopes on Friday morning (her 29th birthday).
There were no Tiger Woods sightings. Dude doesn’t like the snow (or playing second-fiddle). Hope he comes through with a birthday gift.
Vonn is in Austria to train with hopes of competing in the giant slalom World Cup event in Soelden on Oct. 26. She made her first post-injury ski runs in Chile in early September.
A four-time World Cup champ and Olympic gold medalist, Vonn has been committed to being ready for the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia in 2014. We’ll be shocked if she and Woods are still an item by then.
