Vonn will not need surgery

Vonn will not need surgery

Eurosport

After another long, gruelling campaign that ended in March with Vonn claiming a fourth overall crown, the American all-rounder had doctors examine her tender knees.

Tests revealed some wear on the meniscus of Vonn's left joint but nothing that would require surgery, US ski team spokesman Doug Haney said.

Vonn will now rest her knees after a productive but draining season that saw her add the super-G, downhill and super-combined crystal globes that go to discipline champions to her haul.

The 27-year-old started the season announcing her divorce from husband and coach Thomas Vonn and ended it with a women's record point total of 1,980, just 20 points shy of Austrian great Hermann Maier's mark of 2,000 points.
