    "Of course I’m sore. Even before the crash I was sore. So I’m just sore on top of sore. My neck is killing me," Vonn said, referring to the Super G crash that prompted her social media post explaining that she’d retire after World Championships because her body was too broken and bruised to continue competing in the sport she loves.

    Incorrect. She announced her retirement on Instagram two weeks ago. The Super G crash she's talking about in this quote was on Thursday of last week.
