After heavy early-morning snowfall, the skies have cleared for Lindsey Vonn's final race. She is retiring after the downhill at the skiing World Championships, in Are, Sweden, Sunday, February 10th.

According to AP, the race is scheduled to start at 12:30 p.m. (1130 GMT) with the American Vonn starting third in a field of 37 skiers. 

Battling pain in both of her surgically repaired knees, the 34-year-old Vonn recently moved up her retirement date. She then crashed in Tuesday's super-G and will race for the last time with a black eye and bruised rib. 

Vonn goes out as the most successful female skier of all time with 82 World Cup wins and an Olympic gold.
