Vonn Tears Ligaments in Knee, Out for Season
Lindsey Vonn was taken to a hospital by helicopter Tuesday after crashing and apparently hurting her right knee in the super-G race at the world ski championships.

Vonn, a four-time overall World Cup champion, lost balance on her right leg while landing after a jump. Her ski came off immediately, and Vonn slid off course and hit a gate before coming to a halt.

The American received medical treatment on the slope for 12 minutes before being taken to the hospital.
The second photo is probably the most telling: Slovenia’s Tina Maze reacts to watching the crash.
