After yesterday's highly successful training run, injured USA skiing star Lindsey Vonn took today off to nurse her injured leg. That's all it is, though -- rest, not resignation. Vonn's husband has confirmed to the Associated Press that she's definitely racing:
Even though she was bothered by the shin, Monday's practice proved that "she knows her leg will hold up at those speeds, and that she can be fast even if it's painful," said Thomas Vonn, who serves as a coach and adviser to his wife.
Wednesday's women's downhill competition is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. Vancouver time, and will be Vonn's first outing in the 2010 Winter Games.
