Lindsey Vonn is starting to recover after her horrific accident on the mountain only a few weeks ago. Complete with scars and bruises, the leg appears to look sore and is the first part on the long road to recovery for the skier. Unable to compete for the rest of the season, the professional athlete is letting her fans know how things are going and on Monday it was a injured looking knee to show the damage.
“My knee looks...um...not very good.... #longskirtsthissummer #ugh,” wrote Lindsey Vonn on her Facebook. Sharing the first look might not have been a preference for fans, but then again everyone wants to see how she is doing.
The world champion skier had a serious injury at the World Championships in Austria. She tore her anterior cruciate ligament and her medial-collateral knee ligaments. If that doesn't sound painful enough, she broke her leg too. For now the skier is looking at rest and recuperation so she won’t be on the mountain for the rest of the season.
