Vonn Day to Day After Concussion in Training Crash
ZWIESEL, Germany (AP) -- World Cup champion Lindsey Vonn says she sustained a concussion in a crash during practice and is still not sure whether she will compete in the final two races before the world championships.

Vonn tells The Associated Press she will have a medical check Friday morning before deciding whether to race in a World Cup slalom race. A giant slalom is scheduled for Saturday.

The American hit her head in a crash on Wednesday while practicing the giant slalom in Austria and said she was ``sore'' and had a ``concussion.''

Vonn will defend her super-G and downhill titles at the world championships beginning Feb. 8 in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany.
