On Thursday Lindsey Vonn suffered a broken ankle while training at Wakatipu Basin just outside of Queenstown, New Zealand.

The 30 year old overall World Cup leader said on Twitter, “Unfortunately I crashed today and have a small fracture in my ankle. Headed home now but will keep u posted #minorsetback #cantslowmedown.” Throughout her career, Vonn has experienced a number of leg injuries and her ability to come back to the starting gate is unparalleled amongst alpine skiing. As of now, it’s unclear which ankle she broke during the accident.

In the past Vonn has claimed that her plan is to race through the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea before she contemplates retirement.

Heal up Lindsey!
