Skier Lindsey Vonn remains in a Vail, Colo., hospital, where she is being treated for “severe intestinal pain” that she has been experiencing for about two weeks.
Lewis Kay, Vonn’s spokesman, told the Denver Post in an email that Vonn is “awaiting results from diagnostic testing for severe intestinal pain.”
Heinz Haemmerle, Vonn’s ski technician, told The Associated Press that she hasn’t trained since going out in the second run of the season-opening giant slalom Oct. 27 in Soelden, Austria.
“She told me she feels bad and has pain all over her body and that her bones are hurting. … She’s been [to the hospital] two or three times. This is the first time she’s stayed overnight,” Haemmerle said. “The coaches also don’t know. First they told me we would train again Monday, then Wednesday, now the end of the week.”
Vonn’s request to compete in a men’s downhill race Nov. 24 at Lake Louise, Alberta, was recently rejected by the International Ski Federation.
Haemmerle and Salzgeber both indicated that Vonn had skiing injuries or broken bones.
