Vonn ready to train after warm-up run

Lindsey Vonn made her warm-up run prior to the first session of downhill training at Whistler Creekside Thursday morning, and according to her husband, she's ready to train despite her shin injury.

"She was in pain," Thomas Vonn said. "But considering what we've been through, it was as good as could be expected. She wasn't like gritting her teeth. She was like, 'Let's go. I can do this.'"

Vonn, 25, badly bruised the shin a week ago in training. She has questioned her ability to compete at all in these Olympics, which are her third. But Thomas Vonn said this morning that's no longer a possibility. She tried on her right ski boot Wednesday night, and it was markedly better than it had been on her last attempt, on Monday.

"She couldn't have tried it on Monday," Thomas Vonn said.

Training is just now getting under way despite snow in Whistler. Vonn will start 15th. Updates to follow.
