No Date Set For Vonn’s Return Ahead Of Olympics

No date set for Vonn's return ahead of Olympics

9-12 in Altenmarkt-Zauchensee, where Vonn won a super-combined event in 2009. Hoedlmoser said he can’t predict whether Vonn might start in the Austrian resort. ”She has indicated she might consider racing Cortina (on Jan. 16-19) but it’s too early to say that she’s going to,” Hoedlmoser said. ”Maybe she won’t race at all if she feels she can do without another race in her preparation for Sochi. I think she’s handling it well and she’s determined to race in Sochi.” According to American teammate Mikaela Shiffrin, Vonn has been ”trying to stay quiet” since leaving the World Cup circuit last week. Shiffrin was convinced that Vonn was doing everything possible to make it to Sochi. ”She is a tough girl, competing with a knee that just has a mind of its own right now,” Shiffrin said.
