Former Olympic champion finishes 13th on World Cup return after injuries.
Lindsey Vonn was relieved to complete a downhill run on Sunday after her recent injury troubles.
The American finished 13th at Altenmarkt-Zauchensee, however she posted a respectable time to finish 1.54 seconds off Austrian home winner Christine Scheyer.
Vonn, who has one Olympic gold and two World Championship golds across downhill and super-G, suffered a broken leg last March then a fractured arm in November.
The four-time overall World Cup champion also sat out large parts of 2013 and 2014 through a horror knee injury and had not raced competitively in 322 days after the latest setbacks.
She said, “I felt like I was skiing well, just not quite on the limit yet. It’s not a matter of the results, I’m just happy to be racing again.”
