Vonn still up in air about competing in Aspen

ASPEN, Colo. - Lindsey Vonn will take a practice run on the race hill in Aspen on Friday before making any decisions about competing this weekend.

Vonn was hospitalized for two days this month after experiencing severe intestinal discomfort. She recently said on Facebook: "Finally starting to get healthy again! Looks like I had some infection in my tummy but everyone has been taking good care of me."

The main concern with Vonn is whether she's completely back to full strength.

Health permitting, Vonn will step into the starting gate for the giant slalom Saturday and slalom on Sunday.

She spent most of last week training in Vail and also squeezed in a downhill practice session at the U.S. Ski Team's speed center at Copper Mountain.
