After claiming victory in Saturday’s Super-G in Val d’Isere, Lindsey Vonn has withdrawn from Sunday’s event.

But citing her focus on the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang in February, Vonn said she wanted to rest her sore knee.

American Vonn had a nasty crash in the World Cup opener in Lake Louise on December 1 but somehow walked away uninjured.

The 33-year-old has had a number of injuries in recent seasons and is desperate to add to her one Olympic gold and one bronze come February.
