I didn't think it looked that bad until I watched it a 2nd time. You can see her right knee buckle upon landing. ouch.

In my mind, northern New England
This has not been a good season for Lindsey Vonn. I hope she recovers quickly and dominates when she gets back.

On the other hand: Mikaela Shiffrin, "a nation turns its lonely eyes to you."

You all beat me to it. Hope it's not more than an ACL.

Julia Mancuso pulled out the Bronze.

Early media reports is that she broke her right tibula and possibly also fibula (your lower leg bones) just above her boot top :eek:

You can kind of see her leg buckle at the boot top level in slo-mo :eek:

Hope she's ok and heals well with the Sochi games starting about a year from now

I watched in slo mo and I don't see the boot top fracture as the injury. It looks like the right knee buckles in. It looks like a MCL and ACL tear to me.

Ouch, saw it on the news, could hear her screaming. Hope for a speedy recovery with the Olympics around the corner.
