Jennie-Lee Burmansson misses the World Cup premiere
Freestyle skiing star Jennie-Lee Burmansson is still rehab training after the cross band injury. There will be no start in the World Cup premiere in Stubai in two months. - We'll see you in December, says Sports Manager Stefan Karlsson.
It was in early September last year that the accident occurred for Jennie-Lee Burmansson, who was injured in a cross-band before the World Cup premiere in New Zealand and then canceled the entire season.
- I just wanted to jump on the second race day, it was the first race, I landed giant cards and it was well when it went off. It was such a stupid thing. I kind of knew then that there was something wrong, she told TT last October.
A year later, the 17-year-old star is not ready for a comeback yet. Already, it can be said that it is not relevant with the World Cup premiere in Austrian Stubai November 21-23.
"No, I wouldn't say that," says Sports Manager Stefan Karlsson.Back after the turn of the year?
Credible information for TT, instead, argues that it is more realistic to have a Burmanian comeback only after the turn of the year - in that case, with a view to the second World Cup competition in French Font Romeu January 9-11, or the third in the Italian Seiser Alm the weekend after.
- She will go down to Austria on October 8 and do tests, so we will see what it gives, says Stefan Karlsson.
- We'll see in December, maybe it's time to start competing then. We follow her week by week.
Stefan Karlsson is careful to point out that there is no setback in the rehabilitation for Jennie-Lee Burmansson.
- You should take these injuries seriously and take care of the rehab. She has a long career ahead of us and we want her to enjoy her skiing, he says.
- It is an uncontrolled environment in which you ski, you have to be very strong to be able to ski at a high level."Slowing down"
- We are slow, it is a good tactic. There is no championship year this year, except the Youth Olympics at the end of January - but to go there she must have run some competition before.
Jennie-Lee Burmansson broke through two years ago. As a 15-year-old, she was selected for the Pyeongchang Olympic Games 2018 as Sweden's youngest winter Olympian of all time, and won the overall slopestyle world cup.
