U.S. alpine skier Lindsey Vonn is making headlines this morning for her announcement that she may not compete in the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, but it's the unusual Lindsey Vonn Topfen cheese remedy for her shin injury that's making Internet users buzz.

Lindsey Vonn's Topfen cheese remedy is Austrian curd cheese that's wrapped on her legs. Vonn told reporters earlier this week that the cheese wrap is a home remedy thought to reduce swelling.

Implications - Though Vonn is accepting the possibility that she may not compete in Whistler after badly injuring her right shin last Tuesday in Austria, she is refusing to have an X-Ray and embracing alternative, more unconventional treatments in hopes of recapturing her former glory.
