Lindsey Vonn Makes Her Improbable Return To Winning

The beleaguered downhill champion recovers from three knee surgeries to win a world championship

After two years of grueling recovery and physical therapy after injuring her knee, skiing championLindsey Vonn is back on the slopes and winning awards left and right. Yesterday, Vonn claimed her seventh victory of the season and won the coveted World Cup Downhill trophy given out seasonally (which makes 18 of those for Vonn). We love a top dog, we love an underdog, and we love a black horse — for all those reasons, we love Lindsey Vonn.
