Lindsey Vonn took her first super-G training runs since her Nov. 19 crash and, while she’s not sure about racing next week, is “encouraged” by her rehab.
Vonn skied in Vail, Colo., on Friday, a day after freeskiing in Vail with “no issues,” the U.S. Ski Team doctor said.
Vonn partially tore her right ACL in a training crash at Copper Mountain last week, the same knee she blew out at the World Championships in February.
Vonn told The Associated Press her knee is “a lot better than everyone expected.” The AP also asked Vonn about her readiness for races in Lake Louise, Alberta, next week.
“I’m not sure yet,” she said. “As it looks right now, yeah.”
The World Cup races in Lake Louise include downhills on Dec. 6-7 and a super-G on Dec. 8.
