A spokesman released this exclusive statement from Lindsey Vonn Wednesday morning, which Matt Lauer read on the TODAY show:
“First off I want to say thank you to the amazing medical staff that cared for me. I plan on returning to Vail as soon as I can to have the necessary surgeries. I am also grateful to my fans for the outpouring of support, which has really helped me stay positive. I can assure you that I will work as hard as humanly possible to be ready to represent my country next year in Sochi.”
Get well soon, Lindsey.
