The Norwegian stjernealpinisten had so much pain in the knee after Tuesday's Kitzbühel training that he would get examined the knee of the specialists than to train in the austrian monsterløypa Thursday.
By 10: 30 am time arrived a smiling 36-year-old Hochrum privatklinikk in Innsbruck, only an hour's car ride away from Kitzbühel. There were, among others, the surgeon Christian Fink assess whether the licence should set to start in Sunday's super-G and downhill, and what he may run the risk of running.
– When we get a little more weight behind a good review, than that I should sit in the room and take the decision themselves, said Image to NTB on Wednesday.
It was Fink who operated the Image after skrekkfallet in just Kitzbuhel in 2016.
In the 12-time came alpinstjernen ruslende out of the hospital.
– It is not a crisis, but yes, it does not look very good. It is not something new, it is the same old, said Image to NTB after sykehusbesøket.
Utforløypa in Kitzbühel is always among the toughest. It is icy, bumpy and most other things that do not fit Svindals problematic knee.
Romerikingen has won the most is to win in the alpinløypa, but the legendary utforrennet is not crossed off on the list. This year's downhill event in Kitzbühel can easily be the last chance for the Image to to win in monsterløypa. 36-year-old count namely on the buttons if he takes a season or not.
But first comes this year's goal, the world CHAMPIONSHIP in Åre in February. The question is whether he dares to risk the world cup start in pursuit of a victory in the Hannenkamm-race in Kitzbühel.
