VAIL, Colo. (AP) -- Lindsey Vonn remains hospitalized in Colorado with "severe intestinal pain" that has been affecting her for the past two weeks.

Vonn's spokesman, Lewis Kay, tells The Associated Press that "Lindsey remains in the hospital awaiting results from diagnostic testing for severe intestinal pain."

The four-time overall World Cup champion's ski technician, Heinz Haemmerle, tells The AP that this isn't the first time she has gone to a hospital.

Haemmerle prepares her Head skis and has been on hand in Colorado awaiting her recovery. He says that Vonn hasn't trained since going out in the second run of the season-opening giant slalom Oct. 27 in Soelden, Austria.

Haemmerle adds, "She told me she feels bad and has pain all over her body and that her bones are hurting."
