Yesterday, Urs Kryenbühl crashed badly in the men's downhill race in Kitzbühel.

Today it was the Czech Ester Ledecká who got into trouble in the ladies' race in Crans Montana.

She lost control after easing a bit and ended up in the wrong direction.

She lay down for a while but got back on her feet.

The TV pictures showed Ledecká bleeding from his mouth.

She could go down to her own machine a little later.

The competition is ongoing.
