Lindsey Vonn‘s status for this weekend’s races will be determined Thursday.

The Olympic downhill champion is expected to take an official downhill training run Wednesday in Lake Louise, Alberta, two days before the first official World Cup race there.

A decision on her participation in downhills Friday and Saturday and a super-G on Sunday will be made after the final official training session Thursday.

Vonn felt strong enough after weekend super-G training in Vail, Colo., and was cleared by a doctor and coaches to begin downhill training, the U.S. Ski Team said Tuesday.

Vonn hasn’t skied competitively since blowing out her right knee at the World Championships in Schladming, Austria, in February. She reinjured her right ACL in a training crash in Copper Mountain, Colo., two weeks ago.

In other recent Vonn news, it was announced she was the second-most searched athlete in the U.S. on the search engine Bing in 2013. Tim Tebow was No. 1. Tiger Woods was No. 3.
