PostHeaderIcon Women's Olympic downhill training session called off; Lindsey Vonn doesn't go

Thanks to some bad weather in British Columbia, injured U.S. skier Lindsey Vonn will get some more time to rest before taking to the mountain.  Vonn is expected to go for 5 Gold Medals this year but she has been hampered by a bruised shin.

The practice session was called off because of fog and poor visibility.

Vonn did take a free run down the mountain -- although not on the official course -- to test her leg Thursday, the first time she has skied since hurting herself during pre-Olympic training in Austria on Feb. 2.

Her husband, Thomas Vonn, says she felt pain Thursday but "looked solid." [via ESPN]
