Vonn, a four-time overall World Cup champion, lost balance on her right leg while landing after a jump. Her ski came off immediately, and Vonn slid off course and hit a gate before coming to a halt.

The American received medical treatment on the slope for 12 minutes before being taken to the hospital.

The second photo is probably the most telling: Slovenia’s Tina Maze reacts to watching the crash. (Photo: Samuel Kubani/AFP/Getty Images)
