Lindsey Vonn's New Year’s resolution - ‘Try not to crash’

Lindsey Vonn has a simple New Year's resolution.

The veteran American skier is working towards her return from a broken right arm suffered in November, but has a long-term goal for 2017.

"My resolution for 2017 is to try not to crash anymore," Vonn told Eurosport.

Vonn, 32, has violently crashed or undergone season-ending surgery in each of the last four years.

She returned to the slopes in September after breaking the tibial plateau in her right knee during a World Cup race in Andorra at the end of February. Her comeback attempt, however, was cut short when she fractured her right arm during a training run just two months later and underwent surgery to repair the break.

Vonn has had two reconstructive knee surgeries and broken a leg, an ankle and an arm since 2013.
