    I agree, the thread title suggests that maybe Vonn has passed away. :|
    Well, I posted this in the context of the Alpine World Championship in which Vonn's accident took place in the very first event. For me, having looked forward to this Championship all winter, it was a shock and extremely disappointing.

      Unless she calls up fellow Minnesotan Adrian Peterson for a surgeon/rehab referral...!

        Vonn is powerful athlete. She's listed at 5'10", 170 lbs. That's one, country strong, healthy girl.

          She's a marvelous athlete and strong! She wanted to compete against men this winter (in the Downhill). She could handle their heavier skis.

          But spare a thought for Ted Ligety. 2 gold medals and his best event, Giant Slalom still to come.

            Given the shape Hirscher's in, though, he's hardly a lock for a third gold.

              No lock, that's for sure. Hirscher is very dangeous, especially in Run 1

              You have to be pleased by Andreas Romar. I vaguely remembered his name from Juniors but he has surprised me more than anybody I think.
