Bad news is breaking right now… Lindsey Vonn, the US Alpine skier that is a medal favorite in 5 events, revealed in an interview this morning that she has a painful injury to her right shin sustained in practice leading up to the Olympics. She alluded to the possibility that it could keep her from competing. Though there is no structural damage, it is “excruciatingly painful”.
Let’s just hope, for Lindsey’s sake, and for the US Ski Team, that she is able to have some kind of recovery and be able to cope with the pain. We’re rooting for you, Lindsey! Godspeed!
