MUNICH - German police say they helped American skier Lindsey Vonn get to Bulgaria for a World Cup event after she forgot her passport in Austria.

Munich airport police say Vonn realized after arriving Wednesday for a flight to Sofia that she had left her passport in Salzburg, more than 1 1/2 hours away.

They say officers at the airport issued an emergency travel document for the 30-year-old American that allowed her to take her flight.

A World Cup super-G and a combined event will be held in Bansko, Bulgaria, this weekend.
