Resi Stiegler podiums in Ofterschwang -

Resi Stiegler scored her career's first World Cup podium in the slalom in Ofterschwang in early March. Less than two weeks later, in Schladming, she sustained yet another severe injury. Her third major injury in four years. A true season of 'highs and lows'.

Resi had an operation on her left ACL and meniscus on 20th March back home in the US. And is determined to come back.

"I’m not retiring,” she stated definitively, during an interview with the Jackson Hole News&Guide while on a visit to Jackson Hole. She continued: “It’s not uncommon to get hurt in ski racing. This is a six-month deal. If you train really hard, you can come back strong.”

Still on crutches, Resi is now back in Maui, Hawaii, where she lives, ready to get back to serious rehab in a few weeks.
