Lindsey Vonn has hit a rough patch in her bid to hit the slopes again.
Seven months after injuring her right knee after a scary crash at the Alpine World Championships in Schladming, Austria, the Olympic skier announced on her website that she's postponing her return to competition to give herself more time to get back up to speed.
"My training camp in Soelden went very well and I made great progress, but I feel that I need more training before I start racing again," wrote Vonn about her decision to skip this weekend's races at Soelden, which kicks off the new World Cup season.
The 29-year-old alpine champ suffered a torn ACL and MCL and a bone fracture in her right knee following last February's mishap that forced her to undergo surgery.
