Women's Downhill Training Canceled, Vonn's Status Still Uncertain

For the second day in a row, the women's downhill training was canceled due to poor weather. The bad news is that it means injured gold medal hopeful Lindsey Vonn was unable to further test her leg, but the good news is that she's getting more rest. Vonn did manage to get out on the mountain for a bit on Thursday, and was encouraged by her performance. 

"I was happy to be back on snow today," Vonn said. "My shin was still very painful, but I feel like the injury is finally progressing a bit. I am always disappointed when a training run is canceled, but in this situation I definitely welcome the extra day to heal."

The final women's training run remains scheduled for Saturday, just before Sunday's first race, the super-combined.
