She said on her Facebook account that she broke a bone in her right arm and had surgery Thursday night.

“Yesterday started off well but ended badly,” she wrote on Instagram.

Vonn tweeted that she “crashed extremely hard,” and she shared images of her X-rays on Facebook.

“While I am beyond frustrated by this latest setback, at least my knees are ok and I will return to the slopes as soon as possible, as I always do!” she wrote.
