according to CNN;

Vonn, 28, does not need immediate surgery on the "complex torn ligament" in her right knee,
said Dr. Christian Kaulfersch, who is treating her at the Schladming Hospital.

From the Denver Post:

Austria ski federation president Peter Schroecksnadel said doctors told him that Vonn tore her cruciate and lateral ligaments,
adding that this is "the only injury she has, nothing besides this."

If Schroecksnadel is correct about Vonn's injuries, she would require a knee reconstruction.
That would put her on a difficult timeline for surgery and rehab before the Olympics 12 months away, but not an impossible one.

Sounds really awful.
Even if she would be able to ski again competitively would it be worth the risk of a new serious injury?
