Following 10 months of rehabilitating a torn ACL Lindsey Vonn is back on the slopes. Last November, with less than 100 days before the start of the Winter Olympics, Vonn injured her ACL in a ski accident at Copper Mountain. 

In an interview with the New York Times earlier this week, Vonn said that she planned to compete in the 2018 Olympics though she knows there’s some people who don’t believe she’ll be her old self again.

“A lot of people don’t think I will be back,” said Vonn, who turns 30 this month and has not won a race in 21 months. “That’s fine. The other girls are probably feeling pretty comfortable without me out there. When I do come back, I think they’ll see that they can’t be comfortable anymore. It’s a new generation coming up, but they’ll definitely realize that the veteran is not gone quite yet.”
