Tiger Woods’ boo announced via Facebook yesterday that she will not be competing in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. The downhill skier recovering from an ACL injury hoped to be ready in time to compete, but has chosen to give up her spot and concentrate on being ready for the World Championships next February. Check out the direct quote from Lindsey Vonn after the jump:
I am devastated to announce that I will not be able to compete in Sochi. I did everything I possibly could to somehow get strong enough to overcome having no ACL but the reality has sunk in that my knee is just too unstable to compete at this level. I’m having surgery soon so that I can be ready for the World Championships at home in Vail next February. On a positive note, this means there will be an additional spot so that one of my teammates can go for gold. Thank you all so much for all of the love and support. I will be cheering for all of the Olympians and especially team USA!
We at TSB wish her all the best on her road to recovery, and leave you with this gallery of smoking hot pics of Lindsey Vonn:
