Swede Felix Monsen was seriously injured during training in Val Gardena. But he was not the only “victim” of Saslong: she badly hit an Austrian. On closer examination, this story is particularly tragic.

Two years after rupturing the cruciate ligament, ÖSV skater Christopher Numayer suffered a hard blow to his left knee again. The 29-year-old from Salzburg, who fell Thursday during downhill training in Val Gardena, underwent surgery on his ACL in Munich on Friday. This was announced by the Austrian Ski Federation on Friday.
In December 2019, Neumayer tore the same bond at Bormio’s Kombi-Super-G. The 2020 season also ended for him with surgery – an arthroscopy that became necessary on his injured left knee. So many serious injuries in two years – this is very bitter.
Bad luck with skates
Neumayer competed in 33 World Cup finals, mostly in the European Cup. There he also won four victories, one of which was at Sarental in February 2019. He achieved his best World Cup result on December 28, 2019 in Bormio when he finished 17th. It was the day before he ruptured his cruciate ligament and started his incredible string of injuries.
