Injury may force USA gold medal hopeful from Olympics

U.S. skiing star Lindsey Vonn says she is worried a badly bruised right shin will keep her out of the Vancouver Olympics.

Vonn revealed Wednesday that she was injured in a slalom training run Feb. 3 during pre-Olympic practice in Austria. She says she questions whether "I'll be even able to ski."

Vonn is the two-time reigning overall World Cup champion and considered a multiple-medal threat at the Vancouver Olympics, which open Friday.

The first women's Alpine race is the super-combined on Sunday. The first official training run for women is Thursday.
