   LAKE LOUISE, Alberta (AP) -- Lindsey Vonn says she will race Friday in a World Cup downhill, her first competition in 10 months.
 
   In an interview Thursday with The Associated Press and USA Today Sports, Vonn says she is "confident and excited" about racing for the first time since a high-speed crash at the world championships in February, when she tore two ligaments in her right knee and broke a bone in her lower leg.
 
   The 2010 Olympic downhill gold medalist and four-time overall World Cup champion says she will skip Thursday's downhill training run because she feels ready to race and knows the hill well. Vonn says her right knee felt fine and did not swell up after Wednesday's training run.
 
   Fourteen of the American's 59 World Cup victories have come at Lake Louise.
