Olympic champion: "A crash I didn't need"


Olympic champion Sofia Goggia is away for the rest of the season. The Italian broke his arm in this weekend's World Cup competition in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, has been operated on, and has been away for at least six weeks.

Injury once again stops Sofia Goggia from completing an entire season.

Goggia broke her arm when she crashed during Sunday's World Cup in Super-G in Germany, and ended up in the net.

The Olympic downhill champion has reassured fans that she looks bright on the future: “Remember; it is with pain that we can start again. "

"Taken me through worse situations"

The 27-year-old has a crack in his left arm.

In a press release, the Italian Ski Association writes: “A study carried out at Garmisch Hospital shows that it is a radio fracture in the left arm. In the arm that hit the gate. "

According to the Italian Ski Association, Goggia has been away from the sport for at least six weeks.

“It was a crash I didn't need, but we all know that less fun sections belong to a skier's career. I've been through worse situations. And I have always come back with more determination. In the next few days, I'm back at work, to get started on rehab in the best way. "

Working on a new comeback attempt

Goggia is currently eight in the overall World Cup. The break in arms makes her expected to miss the World Cup finals in Cortina d'Ampezzo, March 16-22.

The injury is another setback for the Italian who has been injured in recent years. She has done a total of four knee operations. Sofia Goggia missed the Sochi 2014 Olympics because of a broken cross band.

After breaking her ankle after the Pyongchang Olympics, she missed the 2018/19 season start, and was back just ahead of the 2019 World Cup.

The season over for Rebensburg

Another big name in the women's alpine world cup misses the rest of the season. Viktoria Rebensburg crashed in the same race as Goggia, and is expected to be gone in six to eight weeks.

Rebensburg took her first victory in the downhill race when she won at home in Garmisch-Partenkirchen on Saturday.

The 30-year-old German injured his left knee, the cross band, in connection with Sunday's crash in the super-G.

Rebensburg has won the Grand Slam Cup three times, and has Olympic gold in the discipline.
