Back on Dec. 21 in Val d’ Isere, France, Vonn reinjured her right knee which first prompted talk that Vonn may miss the upcoming Olympics due to the injury. According to a statement released by her publicist, “an MRI showed an MCL sprain, which coupled with the torn ACL, has made it impossible to stabilize her knee and be ready to safely ski again next month.”Val d’ Iser was Vonn’s second World Cup stop since tearing the anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament in her knee last February and then partially tearing the same ACL in November per USA Today.

“Vonn will have surgery shortly and is expected to make a full recovery in time for the 2014/15 World Cup season and the 2015 World Alpine Ski Championships in Vail-Beaver Creek,” the statement said.

“In looking ahead, I have every ounce of confidence that Lindsey will be in the starting gate next World Cup season ready to compete,” said Bill Marolt, president of the U.S. Skiing and Snowboard Association.

“She knows the hard work it takes to get to the top and still has significant goals to achieve in what has been an incredible career.”

Given her rise to fame and star power, Vonn had been cast as the American face of these upcoming games. When NBC first rolled out its huge Olympic blitz, the first promotional spot featured Vonn.

She injured the same knee during a downhill training crash that took place on Nov. 19 in Copper Mountain, Colo., then returned to the World Cup tour in early December with a successful three-race series in Lake Louise, Alberta. Then came her tragic injury in France, with her boyfriend Tiger Woods looking on from the bottom of the course.

While Lindsey Vonn will not compete in the upcoming Games, it is certain she will bounce back from her injury and come back stronger than ever.
