Olympic gold medalist and noted ONE OF US Lindsey Vonn, who learned to ski on the mean slopes of Buck Hill, is taking a break from the World Cup circuit, she said Monday on Facebook:

After talking with my family and consulting with my coaches and trainers, I have decided to take a break from the World Cup circuit. Since my intestinal infection last month, I have been struggling with my energy and strength. I believe that some time off the mountain will help me regain the physical strength that I require to compete at the level that I demand from myself. I want to be emphatic that this has nothing to do with my recent interview with People Magazine. I had completed that interview weeks before I was in the hospital with the intestinal infection.

In the article she references, Vonn revealed that she has battled depression.
