Even the best of the best can get hurt sometimes, and that unfortunately was the case for downhill skier Lindsey Vonn. Tiger Woods' love sustained some nasty injuries on Tuesday, Nov. 20, including "a mild strain to her right knee, a partial tear to her right ACL, minor facial abrasions and scapular contusions from her fall," her publicist told E! News in a statement. The 29-year-old athlete was training for the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, but will she be ready for Russia when the games begin in February? That depends. Her publicist said "She needs to rest for a few days and then will pursue aggressive physical therapy and that will determine the next time she is able to compete after seeing how she responds to the treatment."
