Lindsey Vonn re-injured her right knee during a training run Tuesday, jeopardizing her hopes for competing in the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi.
"Lindsey sustained a mild strain to her right knee, a partial tear to her right ACL, minor facial abrasions and scapular contusions from her fall,"
publicist Lewis Kay said in a statement. "She needs to rest for a few days and then will pursue aggressive physical therapy and will determine the next time she is able to compete after seeing how she responds to the treatment."
