Lindsey Vonn's Status for Olympics 'Up in the Air'

Lindsey Vonn has not trained on snow in two weeks, most likely will not race next weekend and might not be able to race in the Olympics if she has another injury setback.
“We don’t know. It totally depends on how she recovers"
Lindsey Vonn has not trained on snow in two weeks, most likely will not race next weekend and might not be able to race in the Olympics if she has another injury setback, a U.S. Ski Team coach told The Associated Press on Saturday.

“She’s recovering and preparing and everything is [up] in the air,” said U.S. women’s ski team coach Alex Hoedlmoser, according to the AP. ”Right now it’s a total open book.”

“We don’t know. It totally depends on how she recovers, how the knee feels, if she gets the strength back, the stability in the knee.”

Hoedlmoser, who last spoke to Vonn on Thursday, said the skier has not trained on snow since Dec. 21, when she skied out of a downhill race in Val d’Isere, France, when she said her right knee “completely gave out.” It swelled up afterward.
