The world is just less than a year from the 2014 Winter Olympics Games and Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn is recovering from major knee surgery, but it appears nothing can stop Vonn’s comeback train. The champion skier vows to be ready for the 2014 games, according to a Feb. 25 New York Post report.
Vonn gave her first televised interview since her knee injury and resulting surgery from the devastating crash at the World Alpine Championship in Austria on Feb. 5. “Right now my goal is to be back for 2014 in Sochi,” Vonn said on the TODAY show on Monday. “Honestly, in a worst-case scenario, if I trained a week before the Games, I’d be fine. I have plenty of time to be ready for Sochi.”
Sounding very optismic while recovering from her surgery, Vonn noted that it is not as bad as she thought it would be. “I initially thought it was going to be worse,’’ Vonn said. “There was just so much pain that I couldn’t quite tell where exactly it was coming from.” She continued, “I knew what was wrong with me within five minutes of getting there, so everything happened pretty quick. I didn’t think it was going to be the end of my career.’’
The fearless, determined Vonn has given fans something to look forward to during the 2014 games.
