Vonn to return in Austria

Vonn to return in Austria

Injury-prone record-breaking Lindsey Vonn is ready to put 300 hours of rehabilitation behind her when she races in Austria.

Lindsey Vonn will return to racing in Altenmarkt-Zauchensee on Saturday just nine weeks after undergoing surgery on a broken arm.

The four-time FIS Alpine Skiing World Cup overall champion fractured the humerus bone in her right arm in a training crash in Colorado back in November.

Vonn, 32, has been plagued by injuries in recent years and is eager to make up for lost time as she prepares to return to the slopes in Austria for the downhill this weekend.

The American told Eurosport: "Words cannot describe how excited I am to be returning to the slopes this week,

"It's been a tough three months with over 300 hours of rehabilitation but being able to go fast and compete again makes all of the hard work worth it.

"I am thrilled to make my return at Altenmarkt-Zauchensee, a place where I have had incredible success, including breaking the World Cup Downhill win record in front of Annemarie Moser-Proll last year.

"I have already missed a few races but hopefully I can overcome that and still make a run at some World Cup titles."
