Garmisch, Germany – Still feeling the effects of a concussion suffered last week, Lindsey Vonn chose to wear a jacket during her training run instead of the usual speed suit.  By completing a slow and mellow training run, she qualifies for the super combined even though she was a full 10 seconds off the pace.

Thomas Vonn told the associated press that if she, “does a fast training session we could re-evaluate, but it’s unlikely at this point that she’ll compete in combined.”

Maria Riesch, a hometown hero to Garmisch, skipped the training run as well but because of a fever.  She’ll decide on race day if she will do the event. 

Julia Mancuso, however, looked great and is skiing beautifully.  She came is second.
