Next Episode of Lindsey Vonn: The Climb is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
Lindsey Vonn: The Climb, a one-hour special chronicling the 2010 Olympic downhill champion’s comeback from two major knee surgeries, will premiere on NBC on Jan. 25 at 3 p.m. ET.
“This is the most inside look I’ve ever given to my world,” Vonn said, “and I hope it inspires others who are going through challenges to keep getting back up when they are down.”
On Feb. 5, 2013, Vonn crashed in the World Championships super-G in Schladming, Austria. She suffered complete MCL and ACL tears in her right knee, was airlifted off the course and needed season-ending surgery.
Vonn reinjured the knee in a training crash Nov. 20, 2013, re-tearing her right ACL. She attempted a comeback for the Sochi Olympics, but her knee gave out in a race in Val d’Isere, France, one month later. She withdrew from Sochi and had another surgery.
Vonn returned to skiing in competition last month and won two of her first four races, moving within one victory of the all-time women’s World Cup record. She can match the record at this weekend’s races in Austria.
“Lindsey Vonn: The Climb” features never-before-seen video of Vonn’s Nov. 20 crash and operating-room footage as renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews repaired her knee.
The documentary also follows Vonn’s physical and emotional struggles over a two-year journey back to the top of her sport, including having to watch the Sochi Olympics with her family at home. (Source: NBC Sports)
