With two weeks left until the Audi FIS World Cup in Killington, super star Lindsay Vonn had a setback:

“Unfortunately, yesterday I crashed while training in Copper and severely fractured the humerus bone in my right arm. I had successful surgery last night in Vail and everyone took great care of me,” she wrote on her Facebook page.

“While I am beyond frustrated by this latest setback, at least my knees are ok and I will return to the slopes as soon as possible, as I always do! Thank you for the continued love and support, it means so much to me. xo LV”

Vonn, who is the winningest U.S. Alpine racer of all time excels at GS and downhill but was scheduled to compete in Killington’s event Nov. 25-26.
