Lindsey Vonn Crashes in Downhill Training

Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy – American ski racer Lindsey Vonn, back on the World Cup ski racing circuit from a severe arm fracture for only two races, skied off course and crashed into the safety netting during today’s second downhill training in Cortina d’Ampezzo.

Vonn skied down to the bottom of the course on her own following the crash.

“Crash test check,” Vonn posted to social media following the crash. “My arm is still in one piece. Good thing the race isn’t until tomorrow, I’ll be ready!”

Vonn finished third in Thursday’s first training run in Cortina, just 0.22 seconds off the pace. Since returning to ski racing, Vonn already won the women’s downhill in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany last weekend, her 77th World Cup victory.
