Lindsey Vonn's Crash Ends Her Ski Season!!

| Filed under: HealthInjurySkiing

We just previously mentioned that Lindsey Vonn, Olympic skiing gold medalist, went down hard in a ski crash.

She was competing at the FIS Alpine Ski World Championship Super-G race in Schladming, Austria today when she crashed real hard.

She was coming around a fast turn and lost her balance while landing a jump.

Her right ski popped off and she tumbled over, then slid down the slope until eventually stopping.

The U.S. Ski Team Medical Director said she fractured her shinbone and tore her ACL and MCL ligaments in her right knee.

Jeez! That must've been sooooo painful we can't even imagine.

The U.S. Ski Team said in a statement:

"She will be out for the remainder of this season but is expected to return to racing for the 2013-14 Audi FIS World Cup season and the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia."

It's so awful that she got hurt but at least she'll be back at it soon!

We just hope she's recovering well and didn't freak out too much about literally being airlifted off the slopes.

After smashing our knee to nothing, the last thing we'd want to do is swing from a helicopter but at least they got her to the hospital.

Now begins her long road to recovery. We wish her nothing but the best!!

    ASIANS CAN ACTUALLY READ MINDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    they can hear, and see what your visually thinking
    this is the absolute complete truth!!!!!
    .
    The reason a lot of Asians have completely expressionless faces, segregate from everybody else-only associate with Asians and don't associate with non Asians that much, are very untalkative, and are very unfriendly in general is to avoid accidentally revealing that they can read minds by accidentally showing a facial expression or dirty look when someone thinks, or visually pictures something in their mind they don't like, find astonishing, or funny etc because those people might see that and really wonder what that was that just happened there and see the connection, and they might accidentally say something similar to what the person was just thinking and going to say. If they all associated with non Asians a lot more then there would be a lot more people around for them to accidentally show facial expressions when those people think things they don't like etc, so they segregate and only associate with Asians so there won't be anyone around for them to see that and have any accidents happen in the first place.
    .
    Try thinking, best yet visually picturing in your mind something absolutely wild as you possibly can when you are around Asians, and try looking for Asians who give people particular looks, especially dirty looks for what appears to be for completely no reason.

    PLEASE SPREAD THE MESSAGE!!!!!!!
