Vonn returns from major arm damage

The Associated PressNEW YORK (AP) — Lindsey Vonn struggled with nerve damage so severe she couldn’t even move her fingers soon after surgery to fix her broken right arm.

On her Facebook page, the four-time overall World Cup champion revealed in a more than 5-minute video her journey back to the slopes after breaking her right arm during a fall while training in November.

Vonn plans to compete in the downhill this weekend in Altenmarkt-Zauchensee, Austria. It will be her first World Cup race since fracturing her left knee in a super-G crash in Andorra last February.

The 32-year-old was planning to make her comeback during the speed races in Lake Louise, Canada, in late November and early December until she broke her upper arm on Nov. 10 at Copper Mountain, Colo.
