Get Well soon Cornelia!
In super-G training in Saalbach, Austria World Cup skier Cornelia Huetter crashed. The 24-year-old Voelkl athlete suffered an anterior cruciate ligament tear in the right knee as well as a tear of the meniscus. The diagnosis was made by Austrian ski team doctor Torsten Walcher after an MRI and X-ray examination.
"We have been training in good conditions today," the athlete shared. "On landing, the knee gave way, and I went straight to the next gate and fell. Sure, the diagnosis is a big shock to me. I've never had a more serious injury. This is a new hurdle for me, which I will definitely be able to overcome." The Austrian, who has one World Cup win and 10 podiums, had her best result this season by finishing runner-up to Ilka Stuhec of Slovenia in a downhill in Val d'Isere, France, last month. Huetter became the second prominent member lost to our voelkl team after Eva-Maria Brem.
We hope to see them two on the slope soon! Good luck Cornelia
