Video: Vonn says she's unsure if she'll ski at Olympics on Today show


Minnesota native and Olympic skiing star Lindsey Vonn once again appeared on the "Today" show this morning to discuss her most recent knee injury and her chances of being ready for the Sochi Olympics in February.

Among Vonn's standout statements after partially tearing her ACL last week in training was her admitting she doesn't know if she'll be ready to ski in the 2014 Olympic games.

In what may have been an attempt to show her knee is well, Vonn did the interview standing up, and also said if all goes well, she will be skiing next weekend at the World Cup stop at Lake Louise.

Vonn also said she's already put weight on the injured leg by doing some squats, but that her return all depends on her ability to feel stable on skis, stating confidently "I don't need training."

Vonn has already ruled herself out for this weekend's World Cup event at Beaver Creek.
