Swedish national team doctor Anders Englund announced Saturday night that Karlsson survived the rush with fright.
- Frida is back in the pictures and is strong.
The x-ray revealed that his arm was not broken.
However, the arm is swollen, which prevents skiing for at least a few days, Englund said, according to SVT.
The World Ski Cup will continue next weekend in Engad, Switzerland.
Karlsson's participation in the competition has not been announced.
The 30-kilometer World Cup start was Therese Johaug’s overwhelming show.
Norway’s Heidi Weng wedged silver before Karlsson.
Krista Pärmäkoski was eighth as the best Finn.
