The Washington Times Daily - - Sports -

BEAVER CREEK, COLO. | Lind­sey Vonn squeezed in a lit­tle freeski­ing on Thanks­giv­ing morn­ing, a step in the right di­rec­tion for a re­turn to rac­ing af­ter rein­jur­ing her right knee in a train­ing crash.

The reign­ing Olympic down­hill cham­pion posted on her Face­book page Thurs­day: “First day back on snow since my crash and it was awe­some!” She also at­tached a pic­ture of her­self — grin­ning — on an empty slope in Vail.

Al­though she’s skip­ping the races in Beaver Creek this weekend, the 29-year-old Vonn hasn’t ruled out a re­turn to com­pe­ti­tion in Lake Louise, Al­berta, next week.

Vonn had a train­ing mishap in Cop­per Moun­tain nine days ago and par­tially tore a re­con­structed lig­a­ment in her right knee.
