What's Lindsey Vonn Doing Instead of Tonight's Olympics?

Lindsey Vonn: Out of Olympics, On the Red Carpet at Fashion Week

Originally posted 02/06/2014 08:55PM

A red carpet is a lot less treacherous than the ski slopes, so injured Olympian Lindsey Vonn could ditch the crutches long enough to make a splash at New York Fashion Week.

Trading winter gear for a red gown, Vonn walked (gingerly) in low kitten heels, pausing to pose for pictures with fellow athlete Sasha Cohen, at the Heart Truth Red Dress Fashion Show on Thursday night.

Halfway around the world in Sochi, Russia, the 2014 Winter Olympics were beginning, with 230 athletes from the United States getting ready for Friday's opening ceremony.

Gold medalist Vonn, 29, the most accomplished skier in U.S. history, had to sit out the Games after back-to-back knee injuries. She credits boyfriend Tiger Woods and her mother for helping her get through her Olympic heartache.

Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn admits it's tough not being able to defend her downhill skiing gold medal in Sochi, especially after working hard to battle back from an earlier knee injury, only to suffer a second one.

"It's hard. I just want to be there but I can't," says Vonn, 29, who made the difficult decision to sit out this Olympics once she realized her knee was too unstable to compete.

Vonn, the most accomplished female skier in U.S. history, credits her mom, Lindy Lund, with helping her stay positive no matter what challenge she has faced.

Lindsey Vonn: My New Dog and I Were 'Meant to Be'

Pulling out of the Winter Olympics was devastating for skiing champion Lindsey Vonn – but, thankfully, the slow recovery from her knee injury hasn't been too ruff.

"I get to spend time with my new dog," she told PEOPLE at DirecTV's Super Saturday Concert Event over the weekend. "He's keeping me happy."

The boxer-retriever mix named Leo – whom Vonn adopted from a shelter on Christmas Eve – has made a difficult turn of events so much easier for the athlete, especially since he knows exactly what she's going through.

Hello, Leo! Lindsey Vonn Adopts Shelter Pup with Bum Knee

If Lindsey Vonn knee-ded a sign that a 9-month-old shelter dog was meant to be hers, she definitely got one.

The star skier, who was "devastated" to announce this week that she was pulling out of the upcoming Sochi Olympics due to a knee injury, was drawn to her new dog, Leo, because he suffers from an injury himself.

"This definitely brightened my day – I adopted this 9 month old cutie from an animal shelter. He has a bad knee from being hit by a car when he was a puppy and no one wanted him … but I do!!" she wrote on Facebook Wednesday, sharing a sweet shot of herself with the brown and black pup.

Evan Lysacek Won't Compete at Sochi Olympics Due to Injury

Gold medalist Evan Lysacek was emotional as he revealed on the Today show on Tuesday that he won't be setting his sights on the Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia, in February.

"It's very difficult for me to say that, but my road to Sochi ends here," the figure skater told Matt Lauer.

The 28-year-old has been dogged by injuries since winning gold in Vancouver in 2010, and has been undergoing rehab and physical therapy since tearing a labrum in his left hip earlier this year.

"The pain has become in recent weeks unmanageable," he admitted, adding that his doctor warned him that the pain would only get worse and he could be doing permanent damage if he continued training.
