Winter Olympics: Tiger's girl Lindsey Vonn returns to skiing over weekend in Chile
NEW YORK (AP) - Lindsey Vonn returned to skiing over the weekend in Chile nearly seven months after a season-ending crash that required surgery on her right knee.
Vonn, the girlfriend of world No. 1 golfer Tiger Woods, squeezed in two easy training runs on Saturday during the two-week camp with the United States ski team in Portillo, Chile.
On Sunday, the four-time overall World Cup champion stepped up the intensity and took five more passes through the course. She also made some gentle turns on the flatter sections.
Vonn shredded her ACL and MCL ligaments during a bad crash at the world championships in Schladming, Austria, last February.
