Lindsey Vonn returns to competition for first time since injury

Saying she felt ''much more like myself'' than in her season debut a day earlier, Lindsey Vonn finished 11th in a World Cup downhill Saturday.

The four-time overall World Cup champion and 2010 Olympic downhill gold medalist came down the hill with a far more attacking style in the second race of a comeback from reconstructive surgery on her right knee in February.
