It sure didn't look good for the remainder of TJ Lanning's season yesterday. In the season-opening World Cup downhill in Lake Louise, Alberta, the American skier fell face-first and crashed into the fence. Lanning's left binding failed to release immediately, and the US Ski Team said he suffered a knee injury.
Andrew Weibrecht of Lake Placid, N.Y., was the top American in 12th place. Bode Miller finished 29th. You can check out his run here.
