Driessen has to dispense with Beijing
Thomas Driessen must bury his quiet Olympic hopes. Participation in the Lauberhorn races has ended, according to the German downhill skier, who had surgery on his previously damaged right knee in February of this year. And because he doesn’t drive there, “I don’t drive Kitzbühel either.” The races at Wengen and Hahnenkamm will be his last chance to qualify for the Olympics. The winner of 5 rounds of the World Cup is currently in rehab and is also on skates – but only on cross-country skates.
Worst diagnosis of monsoon
Felix Monsen injured his left knee worse than initially expected due to his dangerous fall in the second World Cup downhill training session on Saturday in Val Gardena. The 27-year-old Swede also had a cruciate ligament tear and meniscus damage in addition to a patellar tendon rupture that was identified after initial examinations. The operation was planned for the next few days in Innsbruck.
