Vonn to miss rest of World Champs

American Lindsey Vonn has pulled out of the Alpine skiing World Championships, a day after winning silver in the downhill. The Olympic downhill champion, recovering from concussion after a training accident two weeks ago, said she wanted to concentrate on winning her fourth successive overall World Cup title instead, Eurosport informs. “Coming into these championships, my plan was to race in all of the events, but I’ve decided to take this week off from competition in order to get back to 100 per cent,” she said on her Facebook page. Vonn was a disappointing seventh in last week’s Super-G despite an injury which she says took away her concentration and drive, and failed to complete the super combined on Friday. She will miss this week’s slalom and giant slalom. “It’s been a really difficult few weeks and at every stage, I’ve had 100 per cent confidence in the medical advice I’ve been provided with and believe we’ve made the right decisions,” she said.
