Scary. I hope she's okay
 
2013-02-05 11:38:26 AM  
The local radio guys said the clip looks like her leg broke in half. Hope she's alright.

Also, the first autocomplete for Lindsey Vonn on google is "Lindsey Vonn feet" and goes to wikifeet.

Come on, feet people. You so weird.

Langston: Scary. I hope she's okay


Me too.  But, from the way it sounds, she just tore up her knee to some extent and there's nothing huge or life-threatening to worry about.

Is that you, Rex Ryan? After her name, Lindsey Vonn divorce is the first autocomplete I get.

Yeah article said it wasn't a tibia fracture, which is good.

Plus, she's really hot.

Slovenia's Tina Maze reacts as US Lindsey Vonn (not pictured) falls during the women's Super-G event of the 2013 Ski World Championships in Schladming, Austria on February 5, 2013.

European television stations are reporting Vonn has suffered multiple knee injuries and will miss the rest of the season.


I resized the picture to be smaller, but then fark doesn't recognize the resizing or something.

Tina Maze is damn hot.
 
2013-02-05 12:24:16 PM  
Watch and listen the video they've added to the linked page. You can clearly hear her screaming in pain. That's at least one broken leg bone based on how she landed. That was ugly.
 
2013-02-05 12:31:54 PM  
Career. Done.
/I have $20 says Tiger dumps her right around rehab..hell probably sooner.
//I would if I had his scratch.

Slovenian girls usually are. They have the number one seed in my hot babes tourney.

/Croatians and Serbs are hot too. It must be something in the water over in that area of the world.

article says MCL and ACL tears.  Having had both, I'd MUCH prefer a broken bone (usually 6 weeks to heal, a little physical therapy after) than full blown knee reconstruction (months to heal, months and months of rehab)
 
2013-02-05 12:36:20 PM  
Interestingly, the 2014 Winter Olympics begins a year from tomorrow (there will be some pre-opening ceremony events). Vonn is featured somewhat prominently in NBC's 1st ad for their coverage that's on their Olympics website. Also there, this tweet:

MT @alexgoldberger: Vonn update - FIS official: Dr reported a "cruciate and lateral ligament" injury - not tibia, as rumored earlier.

So she tore knee ligaments and no broken bones???

Tina Maze is damn hot.

   Well sir, I have to take exception to this. It is not that I disagree, but in fact concur,  that Tina Maze is indeed hot. My problem with your post is that it lacks a citation, which I will kindly provide. You're welcome.

   Anybody pleading a case for Lindsey or say...Julia Mancuso best provide evidence....

/all joking aside hope the damage is overstated and Lindsey is racing again soon...would have liked to see her race the boys at Lake Louise...

She cries and carries on like an angry toddler every time she reaches the bottom of a hill, so you really can't judge the extent of her injury based on her reaction.
 
2013-02-05 12:44:23 PM  
Here's a crappy recording of the crash.  Doesn't really look that bad.

No more ligaments

Aleve PM will help her sleep at night

Bizarre. I wonder what is changing those values. Possibly geographic location?

I think the worst part was hearing her screaming. Yeesh. Now my knee is killing me.

Knees are not meant to bend that way.  This is why I choose not to ski.

I'm going to Hell for laughing at that.  The great thing about it is that you will be buying the whole room the first round of drinks.

Well, that's what she gets for dating Tiger after mocking him once the Benz hit the tree... karma's a biotch!

She is a great competitor. I am sorry this happened to her but she's young enough to bounce back.
 
2013-02-06 03:30:26 AM  
Ugly, ugly injury.  I say let her jack up on as much deer antler spray as she can choke down and rehab like crazy for the Olympics.
 
2013-02-06 09:32:10 AM  
torn ACL and MCL.   Yeah, complete recontruction, but still, the way her knee turned when caught in the snow at that speed, it's good news it wasn't a lot worse.

And yeah, Tiger will dump her.  When he realizes he can flip her around like a rag doll for a few months, it's back to Waffle House waitresses for him.

Not just torn ACL/MCL, but fractured her bone right below the knee as well. As soon as I saw it I knew it had to be broken. She's already had surgery on that knee before as well...

Hope she's back in time for the Olympics!
