American Lindsey Vonn will make her FIS Alpine World Cup return this weekend at St. Anton in Switzerland after months of rehabilitating a sprained knee ligament.
Vonn has yet to race in the 2018-19 season after suffering her latest injury during a super-G training run at Copper Mountain in Colorado in November.
That saw her miss downhill events at Lake Louise – her favorite course – and in turn postpone her impending retirement to ensure that she has one more weekend at the Canadian resort.
Vonn was cleared last month to return to skiing and this weekend’s super-G and downhill events will see her resume her illustrious career.
PLEASE WATCH UNTIL THE END I’m NOT done yet!!! It’s been a tough 6 weeks but I’m on skis again and excited to get back in the starting gate. See you in St. Anton this weekend #backinthemix @skibrown #nevergiveup

“It’s been a tough 6 weeks but I’m on skis again and excited to get back in the starting gate. See you in St. Anton this weekend.”
Vonn sits second on the all-time World Cup victories list with 82, four back of record-holder Ingemar Stenmark.
