Olympian and 2009 World Champion Lindsey Van suffered an injury to her left knee during an official training jump Friday in preparation for this weekend’s World Cup ski jumping event in Rasnov, Romania.

Van received medical attention at a local hospital in Rasnov and she will not compete in this weekend’s World Cup event, said Alan Alborn Women’s Ski Jumping USA head coach. Arrangements are being made to fly Van back to the U.S. to undergo further medical evaluation in Utah

Van and teammate Jessica Jerome had just returned to Europe to complete the four remaining World Cup events of the season after making their historic Olympic debut at the 2014 Sochi Games. Coach Erik Renmaelmo is traveling with Van and Jerome to round out the season.
