Brem, who already called attention to herself with significant results, is now working on her comeback after having fractured her tibia and fibula this year on April 2 during free skiing. The surgery on her injured leg was conducted by Dr. Christian Fink. The young Tyrolean took up an intensive rehabilitation training program immediately after her operation during the summer months. Now in September Brem was back on snow the first time. Under observation of her coach Günter Obkircher , she made her first turns again in recent days on the Hintertux glacier.

Eva-Maria Brem: "It's a nice feeling to be back on snow. I feel no pain. The first test was very satisfactory. I hope to be up to speed as soon as possible to take up where I left off last season."

Günter Obkircher coach: "Eva Brem's ambition for her comeback is surely very positive. What she showed on her first contact with snow gives rise to optimism. If she continues to get better and improve in the same way she has been, Brem will soon be able to compete on the top level again."
