VAIL, Colo. (AP) — Lindsey Vonn is delaying further surgery on her right knee for as long as possible in hopes of skiing at the Sochi Olympics.
Vonn partially tore one of her reconstructed knee ligaments during a crash in training two weeks ago at Copper Mountain. She is seeing if she can ski without another operation because that would all but end any chance of defending her Olympic downhill title in February.
Vonn says she likely would be proceeding in the same way even if this weren’t an Olympic season.

James tweeted Sunday night that controversial pop star Miley Cyrus was more than just her over-sexualized image.
See, Miley, talent recognizes talent, though LeBron probably has better odds of twerking up on Erik Spoelstra than Miley does scoring 70 in a game.
The AMAs attracted a whole host of personalities, though, which means there were ample opportunities to catch on video the awkward body convulsions often seen at awards shows that some medical professionals diagnose as “dancing.”
