Earlier in the month, skier Lindsey Vonn suffered a gruesome injury during the Skiing World Championships in Austria where she tore not only her ACL and MCL in her right knee during a timed run.

While her future in the sports is unknown as this point, it appears that Lindsey is pretty upbeat about the setback and she decided to let everyone know how her leg is doing by posting a current picture of it on her Instagram account.

For those of you with sensitive stomachs, you might want to look away from this one but for the rest of you, get ready to see some injured leg:


The caption for the image was this:

My knee looks…um…not very good…. #longskirtsthissummer #ugh

    Tough chick, she’s taking it well. Good on her. Still looks better than my shattered-in-seven-places, compound-fractured femur….

      Yeah. About that. Get well soon. Between the picture of her knee and the description of your femur I’m getting queasy. She’s got a good story about her knee, though. I don’t know the circumstances of you blowing a femur into 7 pieces (field artillery polka comes to mind), but if its something like “tripped and fell down stairs while drunk” you should think up something better than that for your leg.

      I’m going to suggest “shark attack” or “drop kicked hand grenade to save an orphanage”. Might as well come up with a good story, eh? You’ll be flat on your back for a while.
