Vonn Hospitalized With Intestinal Pain

Awaiting test results

World Cup champion Lindsey Vonn remains in a Vail, Colorado, hospital with severe intestinal pain, a spokesman said on Tuesday. "She told me she feels bad and has pain all over her body and that her bones are hurting," said her ski technician, Heniz Haemmerle. "She's been [to the hospital] two or three times. This is the first time she's stayed overnight." Vonn hasn't been skiing since going out in the second run of the season's first World Cup event in Soelden, Austria, on October 27, Haemmerle said. The next event she's scheduled to compete in is the World Cup stop in Aspen on November 24. Vonn's representatives said they will provide an update once they have received test results and more information is available.
