Lindsey Vonn's knee 'gave out' Saturday; still on track for Sochi
The downhill skier pulled up on her run Saturday in France.
Lindsey Vonn removed herself from a downhill race Saturday in France after her surgically repaired right knee "completely gave out" during a run.
Still, the U.S. champion remains confident that she didn't do any further damage.
"I didn't hurt myself more than I’m already hurt," Vonn told the Associated Press. "It was a small compression, and it was fully loaded on the right ski and my knee just completely gave out. I tried to pressure the ski again and it gave out again. I had no chance of making that gate, unfortunately."
Vonn went on to say that she will probably scale back on the amount of events she enters, and her status for the Sochi Olympics in February does not appear to be in question.
"I'm going to stick to a similar plan that I was on before," Vonn said. "I just need to be more careful of how many races I do. So I'm going to play it safe and race really minimal races. Probably one or two before the Olympics."
