St. Paul native Lindsey Vonn's knee did an RG3 earlier today while she was competing in the Alpine Skiing World Championships in Austria. Medics treated her on the slope for more than 10 minutes before she was airlifted to the hospital.

Vonn has recently been in the news for reasons unrelated to skiing. Last month, the Daily Mail reported she's dating Tiger Woods.
