- Lindsey Vonn caught a bad break last week when a shin injury suffered during slalom training in Austria seemingly jeopardized her chances for achieving Olympic glory at the Vancouver Games. Don't worry: Gray skies are going to clear up? Strangely, Vonn certainly hopes not. Her good break came Thursday when the Whistler weather got worse. A day after she openly wondered whether she would be able to compete in these Olympics, a grungy amalgam of snow, rain and fog forced the cancellation of Vonn's anticipated downhill training run. And that bought her precious healing time in an effort to recast herself as Alpine's multi-medal contender.

Lindsey Vonn was going downhill so fast - in a wholesome, epic, lucrative way - there wasn't time to wait for her to actually win an Olympic medal. Lindsey's script was penned months ago, and should her skis take turns for the Whistler worse, well, in the snow business there's always white-out. Usually in America, you need to first cry through your national anthem to activate the Olympics gold card, but Vonn's forward momentum could not be contained. She is the drink of these Vancouver Olympics (Red Bull)

Poor Lindsey Vonn. The Olympic star recently announced she's divorcing husband Thomas Vonn and now she has to answer questions about rumors that she's dating Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow. In fact, it's more likely she's dating Tim's brother, Robby, who watched her ski - and win - last week's World Cup super-G on Beaver Creek's (Colo.) Birds of Prey. After the victory, Vonn did what everyone does after winning a big race. Yep, she Tebowed. The speculation became so rampant she was dating Tim Tebow that she wrote about it in her occasional column in the Denver Post . "A lot of people are wondering what's up with me and the Tebows.

Alpine skiing Whistler DOWNHILL Men, Feb. 13; Women, Feb. 17 Best of U.S.: Lindsey Vonn has won five of the six women's World Cup downhill races and may be the most prohibitive favorite in Winter Olympics history.

Julia Mancuso ranks No. 9 in the world with two top-10 finishes.
