WHISTLER (AP) -- The U.S. Olympic team says Lindsey Vonn has broken her right pinkie after crashing out in the first run of the giant slalom race.
Vonn lost control around a right turn in the middle section of the course Wednesday, got twisted around, landed hard on her left hip and crashed backward into the safety netting.
An injury report from Jim Moeller, the chief medical officer of the U.S. Olympic Team, said Vonn had not yet decided if she will race her final event at the Vancouver Games, Friday's slalom.
According to Dr. Moeller, Vonn has a non-displaced fracture of the proximal phalanx of the small finger in her right hand.
The Vancouver Olympics and the medals race both finished in spectacular fashion for North Americans. The United States won 37 medals and Canada finished with 14 gold medals. Both are the best of these games and part of the greatest hauls ever at a Winter Olympics.
With one more perfect run down sliding's most difficult track, Steve Holcomb drove USA-1 to the Olympic gold medal in four-man bobsledding on Saturday, ending a 62-year drought for the Americans in the event.
