Skier Lindsey Vonn released from Colorado hospital, although illness remains mystery

Lindsey Vonn has been released from a hospital in Colorado, although details of her illness remain unclear and there is no indication of when she can begin skiing again. Vonn's publicist Lewis Kay says in an email that "Lindsey is feeling much better today and has been released from the hospital. She is resting comfortably at home. Doctors are still working to determine what specifically was the cause of her illness but thankfully she has responded well to their treatment. We do not know when she will be able to return to the mountain and will update as her health improves." Vonn was admitted to the hospital in Vail on Monday. Vonn's ski technician Heinz Haemmerle said Tuesday that Vonn hasn't trained in more than two weeks. (AP )
