Switzerland's Andrea Dettling has been ruled out for the rest of the season after breaking her right leg while training in Santa Catarina (ITA).

The 26-year-old was transferred back to Switzerland immediately after the accident on Saturday morning. Due to unfavorable weather conditions, a helicopter flight was not possible. She was therefore taken to hospital by car. The athlete underwent surgery on Saturday evening in a clinic in St. Moritz (SUI).

FIS wishes the reigning downhill and super-G Swiss champion a quick recovery and hope to see her back next winter in great shape for some top-class results.
