Beat Feuz -

After very positive training runs in the last weeks on home snow in Saas Fee (SUI), the 2012 overall runner-up Beat Feuz now has to deal with a setback: an infection has occured in his recovering left knee, forcing a training break of several weeks.

Since returning from Sölden, where he chose not to start due to the poor visibility and snowfall, Feuz felt strong pain in his operated knee. He underwent examinations in the last days and the diagnosis confirmed an infection in the left knee joint with substantial liquid building. Beat Feuz is being treated by doctors and additional laboratory test results have yet to be received.

As a result Feuz cannot join his teammates as planned on the training camp in North America starting on 10th November and his start in the Speed Opening in Lake Louise and the Birds of Prey Audi FIS Ski World Cup races in Beaver Creek is uncertain.
