Simcoe Reformer - - SPORTS -

Lind­sey Vonn’s resched­uled re­turn to World Cup rac­ing is set for Fri­day next week in Italy.

The In­ter­na­tional Ski Fed­er­a­tion says a down­hill can­celled this week by heavy snow­fall in St. An­ton, Aus­tria, will be raced on Jan. 18 in Cortina d’am­pezzo. The Ital­ian venue also stages its tra­di­tional down­hill on the Saturday and a su­per- G on Sun­day.

Vonn is join­ing the World Cup cir­cuit for the first time this sea­son af­ter a Nov. 19 crash in train­ing in Colorado. She hy­per­ex­tended her knee and sprained a lig­a­ment.

The new sched­ule in Cortina calls for two down­hill train­ing ses­sions next Thursday.

Vonn has nine of her women’s record 82 World Cup race wins at the pic­turesque Ital­ian course, in­clud­ing both down­hill and su­per- G in 2010, ’ 15, and ’ 16.
