Jimmy Fallon may be the late night host with a new show, but Jimmy Kimmel has reason to celebrate, too.
ALTENMARKT-ZAUCHENSEE, Austria (AP) — 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.
In a Facebook posting, Vonn said she is "devastated" to miss the Olympics, "but the reality has sunk in that my knee is just too unstable to compete at this level."
Less than two weeks after reconstructive right knee surgery in February 2013, Lindsey Vonn already was sounding a positive note, saying she was "really looking forward to Sochi" and defending her Olympic downhill gold medal.
Her publicist said in an email Wednesday that along with a mild strain in the same knee Vonn hurt in a high-speed fall at the world championships in February, she has "minor facial abrasions" and a bruised shoulder blade. What was not immediately clear: When Vonn might be able to compete and how Tuesday's injuries might affect her Olympic hopes.
Lindsey Vonn remained hospitalized in Colorado on Tuesday with "severe intestinal pain" that has been affecting her for the past two weeks.
