Lindsey Vonn is feeling better and has returned to Europe.

She has started training again in preparing for her return to the World Cup circuit this month after a midseason break to recover from an intestinal illness.

The racing director of Vonn's equipment supplier tells The Associated Press that the four-time overall winner arrived in Austria on Wednesday and began light training Thursday. Rainer Salzgeber adds that Vonn plans to race the downhill and super-G in St. Anton, Austria, on Jan. 12-13.

Vonn has not competed since falling in the opening run of a giant slalom in Courchevel, France, on Dec. 16. After that race, the American said she was going home to fully recover from her ailment that landed her in the hospital in November.
