cruciate ligament tear!  Season over for world champions

At the World Championships in Courchevel/Meribel, DSV ace Alexander Schmid sensationally celebrated gold in the parallel giant slalom. Now he has to unintentionally end his season early.

The 28-year-old tore a cruciate ligament while training in Berchtesgaden, as reported by “SID”. However, the start of the coming season should not be in jeopardy.

“The injury and the associated absence are extremely annoying, especially after the successful World Cup,” said the 28-year-old.

But the world champion is combative: “Now it’s time to look ahead. I’ll work hard and concentrate to be fit again as soon as possible.”

Schmid has already had the necessary operation. According to DSV team doctor Manuel Köhne, the operation went without any complications. With a favorable healing process, snow training is possible again in around six months, according to the doctor.
