U.S. Ski & Snowboard announced this morning that Lindsey Vonn will be making her 2018-19 season debut at this weekend’s World Cup stop in St. Anton, Austria. A women’s downhill is scheduled for Saturday at 5:45am EST and a super-G is slated for Sunday at 5:30am EST. Both races will air on NBC Sports Gold.
Vonn delayed the start of her season after injuring her knee in a training crash on November 19. The three-time Olympic medalist originally announced in October that the 2018-19 World Cup season would be her last, but after her November injury, she revised that plan, saying that she would race through next season’s World Cup stop in Lake Louise, Alberta.
Vonn already owns the women’s record for most World Cup victories, but she is four wins shy of tying the all-time wins record (86), held by Sweden’s Ingemar Stenmark.
Vonn followed up the U.S. Ski & Snowboard announcement by posting a video on Instagram documenting her most recent recovery.
