Man, I remember when people pegged her as someone who would a gold medal one day. She never really came back from her first big injury. She did actually manage to put it altogether in Pyeongchang, and I was hoping she could better her performance in 2022 :(

Weirather tore the same ACL three times between 2007-2010. In fact she tore both her ACLs in Lenzerheide when she was just 17 yo. It's almost a miracle she continued for an entire decade after that. She still found success after those three big injuries.

 

The one in Cortina 2010 just before WOG was really unfortunate, it wasn't even a high-speed crash or anything,

Mads Conrad-Petersen (Badminton) will retire after the 2020 Thomas Cup. His doubles partner Mathias Boe announced the same a month ago (well, he would retire after the Olympics if they qualified. If not, the Thomas Cup)
