Vonn was skiing in Austria for a Super G competition when she fell in a terrible crash and had to be airlifted to a hospital. She tore her cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in her knee, usually referred to the ACL and MCL.
"My knee looks...um...not very good.... #longskirtsthissummer #ugh," tweeted Vonn with a link to an Instagram photo of her bruised and stitched leg, which you can see below if you really want.
Currently, there is no word if Vonn will be able to recover in time for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia, which begins next February. Generally, damage to two ligaments in the knee requires over 9 months of recovery before full training can resume.
