Vonn's training run goes 'without a hitch'


Another day, another Lindsey Vonn knee update.

Today marked the first time Vonn tested her knee in a downhill training run since partially tearing her ACL just over two weeks ago. She took the training run at Lake Louise in Alberta, Canada, and by all accounts, the run went well.

According to an article in the Pioneer Press, Vonn's run went "without a hitch" and she'll make another run Thursday before deciding whether to compete in competition at Lake Louise this weekend.

Vonn has dominated Lake Louise, this weekend's FIS Ski World Cup stop, and the course has even been dubbed "Lake Lindsey."

Vonn's knee requires surgery, but she has already said she will put the procedure off in hopes of being able to compete at February's Sochi Olympics. The 2010 Olympic gold medalist was cleared by her doctor earlier this week after saying she felt strong after super G runs in Vail, Colorado last weekend.

The Minnesota native has won the World Cup downhill title six years in a row.
