VAL D'ISERE---Lindsey Vonn felt her
injured right knee give way, and for a
moment it looked like her chances for
another Olympic gold might be in
Vonn had another scary moment at
yesterday s World Cup downhill in Val
d Isere, ending up clutching her knee
in pain after losing her balance and
missing a gate. But she gave a reassuring
answer shortly afterward, saying no
new damage had been done to the sur-
gically repaired knee, and that her plans
for the Sochi Olympics were still intact.
"I didn t hurt myself more than I m
already hurt," said Vonn, the reigning
Olympic downhill champion. "It was
a small compression, and it was fully
loaded on the right ski and my knee
just completely gave out. I tried to pres-

sure the ski again and it gave out again. I had no
chance of making that gate, unfortunately."
With boyfriend Tiger Woods watching from the
bottom of the slope, Vonn skied out after her left ski
came up in the air, putting all her weight on the trou-
blesome right leg. The American was clearly distressed
after pulling up and looked close to tears as she
clutched her knee.
Vonn needed surgery in February to reconstruct
two knee ligaments after a crash at the world cham-
pionships, and then partially re-tore one of them in
She said she will now give herself plenty of rest
and expects to race again "probably sometime in Jan-
uary" as she follows a light programme before the
"As much as time as I can give myself to really get
as strong as I can, like I said, one maybe two races
before the Olympics. That s it," Vonn said. "I m going
to play it safe and race minimal races, so I can get
the confidence and the timing and the feeling of
racing again. I m really going to be safe and smart
as I can."
Woods accompanied Vonn to a World Cup race for
the first time, wearing light blue jeans, a ski coat,
grey ski hat and dark glasses as he stood in the finish
area and watched one racer after another go down.
"He s very supportive and it s very fun to have him.
This is his first World Cup and I think he enjoyed
it," Vonn said. "I think he was a little bit more nervous
because of my knee. He s worried about me but he s
happy to be here and I m happy to have him."
Schedule permitting, she d like for Woods to come
watch her in Sochi as well.
"Yeah. I love having him around and the more races
he can come to the better," Vonn said. "But I m not
racing that much this year, unfortunately, so you
probably won t see both of us around very much."
With his hands stuffed in his pockets, golf s 14-
time major champion waited patiently for Vonn, who
was the 19th starter.
Shortly after Vonn went out, Woods walked away
from the finish area as camera crews scrambled to
keep up with him.
"Just having someone supporting you, always makes
me feel better," Vonn said. "I didn t feel any pressure,
I had two really good training runs and I felt really
confident today and I m just disappointed that my
knee didn t hold up like I thought it would."
Marianne Kaufmann-Abderhalden of Switzerland
won the race for her first career victory, and was also
delighted to see Woods there.
"It s good for our sport," she said. "It s perfect
when we have a lot of prominent people in the finish
Vonn has five World Cup wins in Val d Isere and
also won two golds at the 2009 world championships---
but those victories all came on two good knees. (AP)

HINWIL---The Sauber team has confirmed Esteban
Gutierrez of Mexico as its second driver for next
year s Formula One season.
Gutierrez finished this season in 16th place in the
drivers standings as the best newcomer.
Team principal Monisha Kaltenborn says Sauber
retained Gutierrez because "we believe he is a talented
young racing driver" whose results often did not
"fully reflect the performances."
Gutierrez says his first season was a "steep learning
curve" and he would do his best to improve.
