Lindsey Vonn Update: Torn Up Knee, Out for Season

by at . Comments

Lindsey Vonn is in rough shape, but the four-time world champion will be okay.

Vonn crashed during a run today in Austria, mistiming her jump landing and sliding all the way into the boundary gate before coming to a stop.

She was treated on the slope for approximately 12 minutes before a helicopter swooped in and took Vonn to a nearby hospital.

But an insider tells Us Weekly the rumored Tiger Woods girlfriend is "banged up but fine. She's been teeing people."

According to U.S. Ski Team Medical Director Kyle Wilkens, Vonn suffered a torn ACL and MCL in her right knee, along with a lateral tibial plateau fracture.

She has since been released from the doctors' care, but surgery is almost definite and she is out for the season.

The Olympic gold medalist is hoping to return for the 2013-14 World Cup and next February's Winter Olympics in Soch.
