Skier Lindsey Vonn remained hospitalized in Colorado with "severe intestinal pain" that has been affecting the four-time World Cup champion for the past two weeks. Vonn's ski technician, Heinz Haemmerle, said that Vonn hasn't trained since going out in the second run of the season-opening giant slalom Oct. 27 in Soelden, Austria. "She told me she feels bad and has pain all over her body and that her bones are hurting. … She's been [to the hospital] two or three times. This is the first time she's stayed overnight," Haemmerle said in a telephone interview.
