ALPINE SKIING Preview: St. Anton World Cup re-scheduled, so Lindsey Vonn will have to wait

American skiing superstar Lindsey Vonn

Heavy snow in St. Anton (AUT) has canceled this weekend’s women’s Downhill and Super-G World Cup races, postponing the return of American star Lindsey Vonn to the slopes.

Now recovered from yet another injury, this time to a knee from a training crash last November, Vonn was slated to go this weekend, but will have to wait until next Friday in Cortina d’Ampezzo (ITA).

Already scheduled to hold a Downhill on 19 January (Friday) and a Super-G on 20 January (Saturday), an additional Downhill will be added on 18 January (Thursday). The St. Anton Super-G has not been re-scheduled and may be dropped.

Vonn tweeted of the change: “It’s actually not a bad thing. More training and hopefully more races in @cortinaclassic and @KandaharSCG”
