Vonn training after rehab stint

-A A +A
By Associated Press

VAIL, Colo. (AP) — Lindsey Vonn is energized by her progress in recovering from a knee injury and might be in the starting gate next week in Canada.
Vonn spoke with The Associated Press on Friday after three early super-G training runs. This was her first big test since she crashed during training at Copper Mountain last week and partially tore a reconstructed ligament in her right knee.
“Definitely, I’m encouraged,” she said. “It’s looking a lot better than everyone expected. Things are going well.”
Wearing a brightly colored jacket over her speed suit, the reigning Olympic downhill champion took an easy opening run through the course on a crisp morning.
On her second pass, Vonn got a little more aggressive, picking up more speed as she glided down the hill. For her third and final run, she opened it up even more to see how her knee responded.
“So far, so good,” she said after her workout.
So much so she remains hopeful she might race in Alberta next week. Asked about her readiness for Lake Louise, Vonn said: “I’m not sure yet. As it looks right now, yeah.”
She concedes there’s plenty more work to do to get into shape.
