You've already heard the news, so let's not make any pretense as to the intent of this article.
By telling you that Vonn suffered very serious injuries this morning in a nasty fall during the Super-G event at the World Alpine in Schladming, Austria, and that she will require reconstruction to both the ACL and MCL in her right knee, I am not breaking any news. I'm aware of the speed of news in the social media era. People knew all about Vonn's fall and her being air-lifted to the hospital by about 8:00 this morning.
The goal if this post is simply to use her being part of today's headlines as an excuse to reproduce this photo from Sports Illustrated of Vonn lookin' super hot in a red and white bikini, clutching a Red Bull beanie. It'll probably be awhile before she poses for pics like this one again.
Oh, did I mention that she's rumored to be dating Tiger Woods?
