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.
