Lindsey Vonn Injured in Training Crash

Skiing champ Lindsey Vonn says she has fractured an ankle bone in a training crash in New Zealand.

"Unfortunately I crashed today and have a small fracture in my ankle. Headed home now but will keep u posted," Vonn wrote on Twitter.

It's the latest setback for the 30-year-old, who returned from serious leg injuries to set the all-time women's World Cup win record last season. She also won her seventh World Cup downhill title.

Vonn, who was in New Zealand for a second week for her first on-snow training ahead of the new season, did not say which ankle was damaged.

Vonn has said she will continue racing through the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
