  SCHLADMING, Austria (AP) - The U.S. Ski Team says Lindsey Vonn has torn ligaments in her right knee and broken a bone in a crash Tuesday at the world championships.
 
     The team says Vonn will have surgery and will miss the rest of this season but is expected to return for the 2014 Sochi Olympics.
 
     The team says Vonn tore her anterior and medial cruciate ligaments in her right knee and fractured a bone in her lower leg.
 
     Vonn lost balance on her right leg while landing a jump, flipped in the air and landed on her backside as she smashed through a gate before coming to a halt.
 
     The four-time overall World Cup winner and 2010 Olympic downhill champion received medical treatment on the slope for 12 minutes before being taken by helicopter to a hospital in Schladming.
