Veronika Velez-Zuzulová injured gravely ligament in her right knee in Argentina and her last careers season is now seriously uncertain and our last medal chance as well :cry:

 

she stated today, that she is actually flying back home to Europe and will be examined by one top Austrian physiotherapist, and we will know more, for now it´s already sure that she will have to miss the first seasons world cup slaloms in Levi and Killington in November. 

 

I really hope it will not be so grave and she will have the chance to compete her last careers race and complete her fantastic career in PyeongChang :fingers:

 

Get well soon Veronika

Well we have enough athletes to compete in the team event, but of course the level will be too different and the eventual medal chance will gone away, but we still don´t know the results of the examinations, the hope dies last, so we still can hope that it´s not too serious, but you know this kind of injuries usually requires surgery and then at least 6 months rehabilitation, so if the worst scenario will be confirmed and she will need surgery her season, last slalom globe attempt, our olympic medal hopes and all her career will be definitely over

So here the news about Veronika Velez-Zuzulová.

 

This Friday She will pass a surgery in Lyon. It will be some super modern surgical procedure, after which she could return to the slopes in 2 months. As she said it´s a risk, but she will fight hard to complete her dream, to win this Olympic medal she is still missing.

Veronika ! what a fighter !!! :yes

 

here the english translation of her todays statement in her fb

Quote

I passed a visit at Dr. Bertrand Sonnery Cottet in Lyon, who also operated my knee last time.

My ligament is ruptured, after a normal surgery I´ll have to take a 6-8 month pause from sport.

However, there one modern procedure, I´ll pass it on Friday, after which I can start skiing in two months. It's a certain risk, but I'm not threatening either my knee or my health, so I'm going to do it. Because I will fight and walk for my dream until the end !
