American skier Lindsey Vonn was competing at Val d’Isere on Saturday and things did not go as planned.

Vonn’s knee gave out on her during her run and the skier had to abort her attempt.

“I didn’t hurt myself more than I’m already hurt,” Vonn told reporters.

“Unfortunately I have no ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) and it gave out on me.

“It was a small compression, and it was fully loaded on the right ski and my knee just completely gave out. I tried to pressure the ski again and it gave out again. I had no chance of making that gate, unfortunately.”

Vonn has 59 World Cup wins and was hoping to win her 60th for boyfriend Tiger Woods who was in attendance.
