Lindsey Vonn is determined to return for next year's Winter Olympics in Sochi after a season-ending knee injury on the opening day of the World Championships in Schladming, Austria, led to her being airlifted to hospital.
A statement from Vonn on usskiteam.com read: "First off I want to say thank you to the amazing medical staff that cared for me. I plan on returning to Vail [her Colorado hometown] as soon as I can to have the necessary surgeries. I am also grateful to my fans for the outpouring of support, which has really helped.
"I will work as hard as humanly possible to be ready to represent my country next year in Sochi."
