Injured Lindsey Vonn Says She Will Miss Sochi Olympic Games

Tuesday, 07 Jan 2014 08:50 AM

Olympic downhill champion Lindsey Vonn will miss next month's Sochi Games after failing to recover from a knee injury, she said on Tuesday.

Vonn, the standout name in women's Alpine skiing and who would have been one of the highest-profile athletes in Sochi, announced the news on her Facebook page.

"I am devastated to announce that I will not be able to compete in Sochi," Vonn said.

"I did everything I possibly could to somehow get strong enough to overcome having no ACL but the reality has sunk in that my knee is just too unstable to compete at this level."
