It would be the first time Vonn has skied since hurting herself during pre-Olympic training in Austria on Feb. 2. She revealed the injury Wednesday and said she was questioning whether she would be able to ski.

Thursday's training is the first for women at these Winter Games. Their first race is Sunday's super-combined.
