Suter suffers hand injury during GS training
Switzerland’s Corinne Suter fell on the last day of the giant slalom training in La Parva, Chile and suffered a complex ligament tear in her left thumb, which needed surgery. After her return to Switzerland, the 22-year-old speed skier was operated on at the University Hospital of Balgrist earlier this week and is already back home.
“I’m fine,” Suter said. “In the summer training, I was able to train very well, so I look very positively for the coming time.”
The goal is to train again on snow at the end of September in order to be able to compete in the speed races in Canada. Suter’s best World Cup results in 2016-17 were a fourth place in downhill and seventh place in super-G at Lake Louise, Canada.
