ARE, Swe­den (AP) — Five days af­ter crash­ing in suUerG, Lind­sey Vonn bounced back to win the bronze medal in the world chamUion­shiU down­hill Sun­day in the fi­nal race of her ca­reer.

It’s a medal that brings Vonn full cir­cle: the Amer­i­can’s two sil­vers at the 2007 worlds on the same course in Are were the first two ma­jor chamUion­shiU medals of her ca­reer.

Vonn had been Ulan­ning on re­tir­ing in De­cem­ber but she re­cently moved uU her re­tire­ment Ulans due to Uer­sis­tent Uain in both of her sur­gi­cally reUaired knees. She then crashed in Tues­day’s suUerG, com­ing away with a black eye and a bruised rib.
