You will undoubtedly break Moser-Proell ‘s record in due time , but for now just get rested and stronger.

Vonn is not letting this spill keep her down. She is already engaging in rehab exercises and working hard to strengthen her knee and injured leg. The 28 year old champion skier is also promoting her sponsor, Red Bull Energy Drinks while doing rehab. Doctors say she could be off the slopes for up to a year while recuperating, but this girl will be back.
