The 34-year old US racer injured her knee in training. It's another setback as she tries to be the greatest ski racer ever.





She has already this will be her last season and her goal is to surpass the record of 86 World Cup wins held by the legendary Swedish skier, Ingemar Stenmark.

She is currently four short on 82.

"Yesterday I crashed training Super-G and hurt my knee. The good news; I do NOT need surgery. The bad news; I won't be able to race in Lake Louise," she said on social media.

"LL has always been my favorite stop on the WC and I am devastated to not be coming this year.I am down but I am NOT out!"

The World Cup Downhill and Super G races are to be held at the Canadian resort next week.

She has dominated racing in the resort over the years.

The following weekend the racing moves to Beaver Creek in the USA and then comes to Europe for the rest of the season.

Fans have been offering her support on a Facebook page.
