Schmidhofer out for the season
Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy – Austria's Nicole Schmidofer felt a severe pain in her right knee after the Duca d'Aosta jump in the first downhill training run on Thurdsay. The 26-year-old had to interrupt her run and was then transported to the hospital of Innsbruck where she underwent an MRI that revealed an anterior cruciate ligament injury as well as a meniscus tear.
The Austrian team doctor Christian Fink confirmed Schmidhofer would undergo surgery and miss the rest of the season.
We wish Nicole all the best in her recovery and hope to see her back stronger next season.
