Sports briefs: Lindsey Vonn returns to Europe to train
Skiing • Lindsey Vonn is feeling better and has returned to Europe to train, but it's less likely Bode Miller will race this season.
Vonn, a part-time Park City resident, has started training for a return to the World Cup circuit after a midseason break to recover from an intestinal illness.
Rainer Salzgeber, the racing director of Vonn's equipment supplier Head, told The Associated Press that the four-time overall winner arrived in Austria began light training on Thursday. He said Vonn plans to race in the downhill and super-G on Jan. 12-13 in St. Anton, Austria.
Returning at the Austria events means Vonn will miss a total of six races, leaving little chance of defending her overall title.
