She’s also a participant in a particularly violent sport, where broken bones and torn ligaments are routine when athletes crash at speeds above 75 miles per hour.
In short, if there are two things that Vonn knows a lot about, it’s training hard and recovering from brutal injuries.
And in an Instagram post Wednesday, she showed her mastery of both subjects by banging out a bunch of pull-ups just three weeks after severely fracturing her humerus in her right arm:
For reference, the typical recovery time for a fractured humerus is generally a couple months, not three weeks to the day of your injury.
And lest you think that maybe her injury wasn’t that serious, in a recent interview Vonn described her arm fracture as “by far the most painful injury I’ve ever had by a long shot.” Given Vonn’s extensive list of injuries she’s suffered recently, that’s certainly something to note:
In the same interview the 32-year-old Vonn confirmed that, despite her injury, she hopes to come back this FIS World Cup season.
And she also noted she isn’t letting her recent string of injuries dampen her spirit: Vonn was adamant that she will race in the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.
