Frisco, Colo. (CNN) – One of the most promising skiers from the United States is now recovering from another injury, less than 100 days from the Winter Olympics.

On Tuesday, Lindsey Vonn crashed on a training run at Copper Mountain in Colorado.

According to CNN, she was preparing to return to competitive racing following a serious knee injury in February.

Earlier this year, Vonn underwent knee surgery after falling on her right knee during the opening of the Alpine Ski World Championships in Austria.

In 2010, Vonn became the first American woman to win Olympic gold in the downhill competition.

During the World Cup, Vonn won 12 races and the overall title.

No word on her current condition.
