Resignation in the ÖSV women’s team! Stephanie Rich ended her career at the age of 26 and after numerous injuries.
“I am going to end my active career very, very grateful to have been able to go this route for so long. This decision certainly isn’t easy for me, but my injury in December and the years not being so easy made me feel even more uncomfortable and 100% ready,” writes a racing specialist Giant zig zag on Instagram.
Rich celebrated her return to the World Cup at the start of the season in Sölden in October after a break of more than two and a half years. In 2018, a mysterious and chronic pain in her tibia left the Salzburg native desperate, and in 2020 she went into pre-season training and ruptured her cruciate ligament and meniscus. It was already the second injury of this kind. In 2017, shortly after she scored her first World Cup points, Richie had to do after one cruciate ligament rupture long pause.
Returning in Sölden in October, Resch did not reach the second round, at the World Cup she was only working in the parallel event in Lech this winter. Since her World Cup debut in 2015, the Salzburg native has only competed in 17 races.
In December, Feather tore a cartilage in the European Cup race at Andalo, which ultimately led to the decision to end her career.
“I wasn’t able to achieve all the goals I set for myself when I was young, but I look back at the time when I learned a lot, was able to see a lot of the world and make a lot of friends, which I am very grateful for,” continues Rich.
