VAIL, Colo. -- Lindsey Vonn is energized by her progress in recovering from a knee injury and might be in the starting gate next week in Canada. Vonn spoke with The Associated Press on Friday after three early super-G training runs. This was her first big test since she crashed during training at Copper Mountain last week and partially tore a reconstructed ligament in her right knee. "Definitely, Im encouraged," she said. "Its looking a lot better than everyone expected. Things are going well." Wearing a brightly colored jacket over her speed suit, the reigning Olympic downhill champion took an easy opening run through the course on a crisp morning. On her second pass, Vonn got a little more aggressive, picking up more speed as she glided down the hill. For her third and final run, she opened it up even more to see how her knee responded. "So far, so good," she said after her workout. So much so she remains hopeful she might race in Alberta next week. Asked about her readiness for Lake Louise, Vonn said: "Im not sure yet. As it looks right now, yeah." She concedes theres plenty more work to do to get into shape. "Im taking it day by day. Im not pushing it that hard yet," Vonn said. "Today, I was just kind of feeling it out. But the last run was better. It was more like normal. Im skiing in my clothes and seeing how things go so far. Im not taking unnecessary risks yet." Some say Vonn shouldnt push so soon, especially with the Sochi Games not until February. Why not come back in January to give her surgically repaired knee more time to heal? "Because I want to start in Lake Louise," Vonn said of a course she dominates so much its known as "Lake Lindsey." She laughed as she unbuckled her ski boots and stuffed them into her car. "Im just going to progress every day until Lake Louise," Vonn said. Vonn spent Thanksgiving Day squeezing in a little free skiing, posting on her Facebook page: "First day back on snow since my crash and it was awesome!" She also attached a picture of herself -- grinning -- on an empty slope in Vail. This, however, was a bigger step. The 29-year-old Vonn is not planning to attend the season-opening World Cup downhill on the new Beaver Creek course on Friday because "its too hard on me." Vonn had her sights set on returning for this race after tearing ligaments in her right knee during a high-speed accident at the world championships in February. She was on target, too, before her Copper Mountain crash. Discount Old Skool .

PAUL, Minn.LISBON, Portugal -- Portugal coach Paulo Bento has quit because of poor results, including a 1-0 shock defeat against Albania. Bentos departure was by mutual agreement, and his replacement would be announced soon, the Portuguese Football Federation said in a statement on Thursday without elaborating. Bento took charge four years ago and steered Portugal to the 2012 European Championship semifinals. But at the World Cup in Brazil, the Portuguese disappointed. They exited in the first round, and last Sunday lost to visiting Albania in their first qualifier for Euro 2016. Portuguese fans jeered and waved white handkerchiefs after the Albania upset, and Bento was under fierce pressure to quit.dddddddddddd Star striker Cristiano Ronaldo wasnt fully fit at the World Cup and sat out the Albania match. His absence left the Portuguese wanting in front of goal and looking average. Portugals next match in its Euro 2016 qualifying campaign is against Denmark on Oct. 14. Bento, aged 45 and a former Portugal midfielder, was one of Europes most inexperienced national coaches when he replaced Carlos Queiroz in September 2010, having coached only Sporting Lisbon in a top flight.
