US Ski Team: Vonn plans to train 

The U.S. Ski Team says Lindsey Vonn is expected to start in an Olympic downhill training run despite her bruised and swollen right shin.

The team says Vonn is up on the mountain Thursday morning for course inspection and feels a little pain in her leg but is planning to ski later.

It would be the first time Vonn has skied since hurting herself during pre-Olympic training in Austria on Feb. 2. She revealed the injury Wednesday and said she was questioning whether she would be able to ski.

Thursday's training is the first for women at these Winter Games. Their first race is Sunday's super-combined.
