Lindsey Vonn recovering after knee surgery

From WENN.com

The gold medallist is expected to make a full recovery following her operation at the Vail Valley Surgery Center in Colorado.

A statement from Dr. Bill Sterett of Vail-Summit Orthopaedics, the head physician for the U.S. Women's Alpine Ski Team, reads, ""The overall success rate for ACL/MCL (anterior cruciate ligament/medial collateral ligament) surgery is very good. Modern surgical techniques combined with aggressive rehabilitation will help Lindsey make a full recovery.

""She will do everything in her power to return as quickly as possible to competitive skiing.""

Vonn had to be airlifted to hospital after crashing into a safety gate while competing at the Alpine Ski World Championships in Schladming, Austria, on Tuesday (05Feb13).
