Lindsey Vonn injured again: No start in Lake Louise

Ski star Lindsey Vonn has suffered a knee injury during training and can not compete in the first speed races of the new World Cup season. That said the 34-year-old American on Tuesday night. She misses two departures and a SuperG on her favorite track in Lake Louise (Canada) the weekend after next.

The news comes as a setback in her pursuit to become the most prolific World Cup winner in history, Vonn's 82 career victories leaving her four short of Swede Ingemar Stenmark's record haul.

"I fell in Super G training yesterday and injured my knee," Vonn wrote on Twitter the day after her accident in Copper Mountain. "The good news: I do not need surgery, the bad news: I will not be able to race in Lake Louise."

Vonn has already celebrated 18 World Cup victories on the Canadian west coast and this winter's best chance of approaching the Stenmark record. In her final season, the American would have to win four races to equalize the record of Sweden Ingemar Stenmark of 86 victories.
