Woods' gal Vonn makes successful return from injury by finishing fifth in super-G

London, Dec 9 : Tiger Woods' girlfriend Lindsey Vonn finished fifth in Sunday's World Cup super-G to complete a successful return to competition after a serious knee injury, according to reports.

According to BBC, the American, 29, is trying to prove her fitness ahead of the Sochi Winter Olympics, which start on 7 February.

The event in the Canadian Rockies was Vonn's first competitive outing after she suffered ruptured knee ligaments in a crash during February's World Championships in Schladming, Austria, the report said.

The four-time overall World Cup champion only returned to training in September, then in November she partially tore the anterior cruciate ligament in the same knee, the report added.

Vonn, who won gold in the downhill at the Vancouver Games in 2010 and bronze in the super-G, says she needs more time on the slopes before February's defence of her Olympic title in Russia, the report mentioned.
