In this photo taken Sunday, Feb. 3, 2013, U.S. ski racer Lindsey Vonn attends a press conference in Schladming, Austria. Vonn crashed during the super-G at the Alpine Skiing world championships Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2013 and has been taken by helicopter to a hospital from the world championships after apparently injuring her right knee. The American lost balance on her right leg while landing after a jump. Her ski came off immediately, and Vonn slid off course and hit a gate before coming to a standstill. Vonn received medical treatment on the slope for 12 minutes before going to the hospital. (AP Photo/Luca Bruno) Photo by
