Lindsey Vonn is staying positive about competing at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi despite suffering an injury while training earlier this month.
"I'm confident it's going to be OK," the Olympic skier told Matt Lauer on Today. "At this point, that's all I can do, is stay positive. I'm kind of out of options at this point. I hope I can continue racing."
Vonn, 29, underwent major surgery on her right knee earlier this year after she crashed during the 2013 World Championships in February. In addition to physical therapy, she has been training extensively in hopes of being able to compete in the 2014 Winter Olympics, which start in February. But a crash while training at Copper Mountain in Colorado once again derailed her plans.
"I don't think I was pushing myself too hard," Vonn said. "It was just a fluke accident ... that's the risk you take when you're going 80-90 miles per hour down a mountain."
Vonn, who won a gold and a bronze medal at the 2010 Winter Olympics, was expected to return to competition on Nov. 29 in Beaver Creek, Colo. before her recent crash.
