Vonn returns to Europe and begins training again.

Lindsey Vonn is feeling better and has returned to Europe and started training again as she prepares to return to the World Cup skiing circuit this month after an unscheduled midseason break. Rainer Salzgeber, the racing director of Vonn's equipment supplier Head, tells The Associated Press that the four-time overall winner arrived in Austria on Wednesday and began light training yesterday. Salzgeber says Vonn is planning to start racing again in the downhill and super-G in St. Anton, Austria, on January 12-13. Vonn has not raced since falling in the opening run of a giant slalom in Courchevel, France, on December 16. After that race, the American announced she was going home to fully recover from an intestinal illness that landed her in the hospital in November. (AP)
