Thursday night was not a good one for Lindsey Vonn. She broke her arm in a skiing accident in Colorado’s Copper Mountain. She shared the news with a facebook post that read, “Unfortunately, yesterday I crashed while training in Copper and severely fractured the humerus bone in my right arm, on Facebook. I had successful surgery last night in Vail and everyone took great care of me.” She also added “While I am beyond frustrated by this latest setback, at least my knees are ok and I will return to the slopes as soon as possible, as I always do! Thank you for the continued love and support, it means so much to me.” Vonn has been to the Olympics three times and her career has seen numerous injuries. She was was hoping to be back and ready for the World Cup races in Lake Louise, Alberta, in early December. She withdrew from the World Cup competition last season as well after suffering a hairline knee fracture.
