Young Slovene Ema Klinec will be sidelined due to a serious knee injury and therefore miss the first ever Olympic Winter Games for ladies' ski jumping.

The 15-year-old, who is considered one of the biggest talents, competed in the Alpencup in Predazzo last weekend. There she won the first competition on Friday, but then fell in Saturday's trial round and tore ligaments in her right knee.

"I know it's like one month until the first Olympics ever but I can't do anything. There were some chances but it's just to fast and to risky. I'm 15 years old, I have almost everything still ahead of me and I think it's not worth it", Klinec wrote on her facebook page.
