According to reports, skier Lindsey Vonn crashed during a super-G run at the World Championships in Schladming, Austria on Tuesday.

According to Sports Illustrated:

The four-time overall World Cup champion 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 halt. She received treatment on the slope for 12 minutes before going to the hospital. Her U.S. team had no immediate information on her condition.

ESPN.com added:

Vonn trailed race winner Tina Maze of Slovenia by 0.12 seconds shortly before the crash. The race, which was postponed for 3½ hours because of fog, resumed after another 15-minute delay. Several racers struggled with the conditions.

Vonn apparently injured her knee in the crash, but the severity of the injury is not known at this time.

The 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia begin in exactly one year from Tuesday. There is no word on whether this will affect Vonn’s participation in the games.
