INNSBRUCK, Austria (AP) — Austrian skier Cornelia Huetter will miss the world championships in February after hurting her right knee and lower leg in a downhill crash on Sunday.
The Austrian ski federation says Huetter will be out for at least four weeks after partly tearing an ACL and a calf muscle in the race in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, which was won by Austrian teammate Stephanie Venier.
Huetter says “at the moment it’s very bitter but in a few weeks it will look different. It’s another hurdle I didn’t plan, but I will overcome this one as well.”
Huetter, a speed specialist who has two World Cup wins, had just returned from a five-week injury layoff.
