Ski Champion Lindsey Vonn Hospitalized With Illness, USSA Says

Olympic downhill champion Lindsey Vonn has been admitted to hospital in Vail, Colorado with an “undisclosed illness,” the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association said on its website.

The 28-year-old American is in Colorado to prepare for an alpine World Cup race on Nov. 24-25 in Aspen.

Vonn,a four-time World Cup overall champion, skipped last weekend’s slalom races in Levi, Finland to prepare for the U.S. swing.
