Sochi Bummer: Vonn Out for Olympics

Sochi Bummer: Vonn Out for Olympics
Vonn Out
Lindsey Vonn will miss the Olympics due to her injured knee, but the U.S. Ski Team loses more than its top racer.

Well, that puts a chill into the Team USA’s Winter Olympic medal hopes. Lindsey Vonn, the most decorated U.S. racer ever, has pulled out of the Games due to her bum right knee. That’s not only a severe loss on the competitive side, but the Sochi Games, less than a month away, could have predictably been all-Vonn, all-the-time for the telegenic athletic. She has become the face of skiing in the U.S., if almost perhaps the world. And the Sochi Games more than any other, were shaping up to be the first fully socialized, live streamed, 24/7-watched Winter Olympics.

Sabermetricians will tell you that a ballplayer who has avoided injury over many seasons is likely to continue doing so in future seasons. But the inherent dangers of World Cup racing have finally caught up with the seemingly invincible Lindsey Vonn.

 The winner of 59 World Cup races will return home to Vail this week.

Vonn, U.S. Women Continue to Crush

Ligety, on the verge of the Wengen podium, skis out near the finish.

Lindsey Vonn, the third-winningest racer in World Cup history, got back into the record-chasing business over the weekend with a win in the downhill at Cortina, Italy, and the American women continued to crowd the top of the speed-event leaderboards.

On the men’s side, it was Lauberhorn weekend in Wengen, Switzerland, where Italy’s Christof Innerhofer won the tour’s longest downhill. Marco Sullivan was the top American finisher in 13th. GS points leader Ted Ligety appeared headed for a second-place finish in the Wengen combined but skied out near the finish of his slalom run.

Even superstars have to pay Uncle Sam.

Seems like Lindsey Vonn sets records every time she clicks in her skis. But when it comes to keeping records of, say, her income and taxes, well, not so much.
