(CNN) — Olympic champion Lindsey Vonn was airlifted to a hospital Tuesday after she crashed during the opening day super G at the Alpine Ski World Championships in Austria, the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association said.

She suffered a “complex knee injury,” according to the hospital where she was taken. Her injuries are not life-threatening, a hospital spokesman said.

The American was immediately attended to by race medical officials in Schladming, Austria, before being transported to the hospital, the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association said in a statement on its website.

Vonn, 28, won the downhill gold in the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver and is a four-time overall Alpine Ski World Cup champion.
