Lindsey Vonn remained hospitalized in Colorado on Tuesday with “severe intestinal pain” that has been affecting her for the past two weeks.
Haemmerle, who prepares Vonn’s Head skis and has been on hand in Colorado awaiting her recovery, said that Vonn hasn’t trained since going out in the second run of the season-opening giant slalom Oct. 27 in Soelden, Austria.
“She told me she feels bad and has pain all over her body and that her bones are hurting. … She’s been (to the hospital) two or three times. This is the first time she’s stayed overnight,” Haemmerle said in a telephone interview. “The coaches also don’t know. First they told me we would train again Monday, then Wednesday, now the end of the week.”
Vonn recently requested to compete in a men’s downhill race, only to be rejected by the International Ski Federation. She was hoping to enter the men’s race Nov. 24 at Lake Louise, Alberta. Had she been allowed to compete against the men, Vonn would have missed the two women’s races in Aspen, Colo., because they take place the same weekend.
“There’s been no news, so we’re kind of worried,” Head racing director Rainer Salzgeber said from Austria. “It’s not good.”
