In the world of sports, there were unfortunately also some bitter events last weekend. Both ski racers and soccer players have been affected by serious injuries.
Tyrolean ski racer Thomas Feller suffered whiplash in a fall during training. The incident occurred on the slopes in Wengen when Feller was carried out of the turn at high speed. Fortunately, however, the athlete should be fit again in a few weeks and already be able to compete in the next race.
Soccer player Maximilian Brennsteiner also had bad luck. During a match against FC Bayern Munich, the midfielder tore his cruciate ligament. The exact downtime is still unclear, but the 25-year-old will not be available to the team for the time being.
Despite these negative events, however, we are not discouraged. The spirit of sport will live on and inspire us also in the future.
A Tyrolean skier was hospitalized with whiplash as a result of the accident at the World Cup slalom in Levi, Finland. According to doctors, the athlete must take a break from injury.
Due to the accident during training in the Stubaital, Sebastian Brennsteiner suffered a ruptured cruciate ligament and required surgery. The Austrian skier is expected to miss the entire season.
