BEAVER CREEK, Colo. – American Bode Miller suffered a serious leg injury in a crash 59 seconds into the men’s super G race of the 2015 FIS Alpine World Championships in Colorado.

Miller suffered a torn hamstring tendon when he lacerated his leg on his ski edge during the crash. Successful surgery was performed this afternoon at Vail Valley Medical Center with Dr. Randy Viola and Dr. Tom Hackett, but Miller will be unable to contest any further races at these World Championships.

“Feeling lucky since things could have been way worse,” Miller posted on Twitter.
