Andrea Dettling skips season
Andrea Dettling won't be able to race during the upcoming winter season. A painful bruise right at the top of her ski boot which she developed during last season has made normal preparation on snow impossible. Dettling already had to quit the season prematurely last year due to continuous pain. Her last race was in Cortina d`Ampezzo (ITA) in January 2011. During the summer she only could conduct two test runs on snow, just to confirm that the pain had not lessened during the summer.
Dettling decided with her coaches and doctors not to race during the 2011/12 season.
"I took the decision to skip this season with a view to the future. I will work with all possible means, together with the doctors, in fnding a solution for the problem in order to be able to race without pain during many future winters," commented Andrea Dettling her decision.
