Vonn plans to ski despite injured knee

Vonn plans to ski despite injured knee

Olympic downhill champion Lindsey Vonn plans to enter both World Cup races this weekend despite an injury to her left knee.
U.S. women's head coach Alex Hoedlmoser says "it seems to be OK. It's still bothering her a little bit, but she's able to train and it's nothing really serious."
A downhill race is scheduled for Saturday, followed by a super-combined Sunday.
However, both races are in question due to an ongoing blizzard at the site of the 2006 Turin Olympics that wiped out Friday's final downhill training run.
Organizers say the racing could be postponed to Monday.
Vonn injured herself with a strenuous recovery after making a big mistake during a downhill in Cortina last weekend. She has a possible strained MCL.
