Lindsay Vonn, America’s best downhill hope in the upcoming Sochi Olympics, has not been on skis for seven months. Yet ski racing is a sport that requires near-daily training all year round, not just in winter.
Vonn’s horrific crash last February required extensive surgical repair. According to USA Today, the star skier, who is also golfer Tiger Wood’s girl friend, will hit the slopes once again in Portillo, Chili, where it’s now winter.
