Alpine skiing, Marcel Hirscher falls into training. Malleol fracture and six-week stop for the Austrian

 

The Olympic season for Marcel Hirscher begins in the worst ways. The Austrian champion, winner of the last six editions of the Alpine Ski World Cup, bolted a blade on the first day of training on the Mölltal glacier, remaining a bad fall.

The world champion in charge of slalom and giant was immediately transported to the hospital in Salzburg, where he was diagnosed with the fracture of the left ankle malleolus. It should not be done, however, it will be obliged to carry the plaster for 6 weeks.

Really a bad hit for Hirscher: an injury at this stage of preparation could turn out to be peculiar in view of approaching the PyeongChang 2018 Games. It is difficult for the Austrian to force the time to come back to the world cup giant in Sölden Next October 29. The primary goal of one of the greatest skiers of all time, in fact, remains that Olympic gold so far barely escaping.

Snowy conditions day after day When the giants arrive (will leave August 22) we will privilege the giant, even if we do not forget the slalom, this first group will do all the time in Ushuaia, while the giants will divide between Ushuaia and Valle Nevado. , On the other hand, will depart on September 1 and will arrive directly to Valle Nevado “.
