Ski racer Lindsey Vonn, who re-tore her ACL in her right knee in a training crash, is vowing to return for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
Vonn posted to her Facebook page on Thursday “First day back on snow since my crash and it was awesome!”
Vonn told interviewers on NBC television’s Today Show on Wednesday that she still has time to recover for the Olympics.
“Unfortunately, it was really bad timing for me,” Vonn said. “I’m still confident. I still feel like I have a lot left to achieve this season. … I still have time before Sochi.”
“Definitely, I’m encouraged,” Vonn told the Associated Press after the training. “It’s looking a lot better than everyone expected. Things are going well.”
