Lindsey Vonn had  pretty scary crash yesterday training for Giant Slalom  in Hinterreit, Austria.  According to her facebook page she said the following.  “I hit my head pretty hard and had to go the hospital to get a CT scan.  Luckily the scan showed no major injuries.”

6 days before the Alpine World Championships are set to begin in Garmisch, Germany, the defending Super -G and Downhill Champion lost her balance on a gate, hit hard and lay motionless.  You can see video footage of this on her facebook page.

“I will be very sore tomorrow but should be fine in a few days,” She said.   Whether she would race in this weekend’s giant slalom and slalom World Cup races in Arber-Zwiesel, Germany she says she will ‘play it by ear.’
