Professional skiier Lindsey Vonn attended the annual Delete Blood Cancer Gala in New York City last night, and we couldn't help but notice she was missing a certain someone next to her.

When asked where her date (and boyfriend) Tiger Woods was, Vonn simply stated, "He's practicing."

Regardless, the beautiful blonde was eager to arrive at the event, especially as it was her first outing without her knee brace; she got injured at the Alpine World Championships in Schladming, Austria in February.

"I'm still in rehab, things are going really well. The knee is coming along quite nicely. But I should start skiing in September and everything's right on track for the Olympics in February," she told E! News.

"I just dumped the brace. This is my first trip without the brace, so I'm really excited. But, unfortunately my doctor wants me to ski with it for a while, so still gonna be difficult. I can't get rid of it entirely, unfortunately."

Don't worry, Lindsey. If anyone can make skiing with a knee brace on work, it's you.
