The Winter Olympics are set to begin in February and gold medalist Lindsey Vonn has just pulled out of the games. The skier broke the news on social media saying, "I am devastated to announce that I will not be able to compete in Sochi. I did everything I possibly could to somehow get strong enough to overcome having no ACL but the reality has sunk in that my knee is just too unstable to compete at this level. I'm having surgery soon so that I can be ready for the World Championships at home in Vail next February." The 29-year-old had a rough year tearing her ACL and MCL last February and suffering more injuries later in 2012. Lindsey will undergo knee surgery soon her rep said in a statement. We wish you a speedy recovery!
