She tore two knee ligaments while competing in the Super-G as part of the Alpine Ski World Championships in Austria yesterday (February 5) but that’s not keeping Lindsey Vonn down.

The Olympic gold medalist was taken to the hospital for treatment, and she’s already looking forward to her recovery regimen.

Lindsey explained, "First off I want to say thank you to the amazing medical staff that cared for me. I plan on returning to Vail as soon as I can to have the necessary surgeries."

"I am also grateful to my fans for the the outpouring of support, which has really helped me stay positive. I can assure you that I will work as hard as humanly possible to be ready to represent my country next year in Sochi."
