Eight days after announcing she could not compete in the Sochi Olympics, Lindsey Vonn tweeted Wednesday morning that surgery to repair her ACL went well.

Her recovery buddy? That would be her new rescue dog, Leo (who coincidentally also has a bum knee).
With another knee surgery under her belt, the question becomes what’s next for the former Olympian? Probably not the 2018 Olympics, according to former downhill great Picabo Street.
“I think she’s done [after next season],” Street told the Denver Post. “I think she comes back for a rip-roaring 2014-15 season, she wins those three and then some, she double medals at the world championships and she hangs it up, becomes a trophy wife. Where’s the motivation coming from for her to do more than that?”
