ALTENMARKT-ZAUCHENSEE, Austria — The head coach of the U.S. women’s ski team has praised Lindsey Vonn for taking “a very hard decision” and skipping the Sochi Olympics in February because of her injured right knee.
“There was too much risk and she realized that and made the right decision,” Alex Hoedlmoser told The Associated Press on Wednesday. “It was a very smart decision from her to actually do this step now.”
Vonn announced Tuesday she would miss the Olympics after “the reality has sunk in that my knee is just too unstable to compete at this level.”
