Lindsey Vonn, of United States, her right arm blocked, leaves after falling during an alpine ski women's World Cup Super-G in Val d'Isere, France, Sunday, Dec. 21, 2014. Vonn was looking for a fourth consecutive podium finish and was .01 ahead of Georgl's time on the first split. But after going too tightly into a turn, Vonn went inside on her skis and slid off course, prompting gasps from fans at the bottom of the Oreiller-Killy course. The four-time World Cup champion lay on her back for a few moments before getting up, with no apparent damage to her troublesome right knee. Vonn was looking to move level with Austrian great Annemarie Moser-Proll for all-time wins. (AP Photo/Giovanni Auletta)
