The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association said that Vonn suffered a “complex knee injury.”
Her injuries were not life-threatening, a hospital spokesman said. The Olympian was immediately attended to by race medical officials in Schladming, Austria, before being airlifted to the hospital.
Vonn, 28, won the downhill gold in the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver and is a four-time overall Alpine Ski World Cup champion. This injury could put her 2014 Olympic run at risk.
