Keep your fingers crossed for me to make it to MS. Ledecká has had another operation

Three-time Olympic champion Ester Ledecká has undergone another surgery on her collarbone, which she broke during summer training. The twenty-seven-year-old skier and snowboarder will enter the season only in the new year. Ledecká informed about this in a press release today. She hopes she could make it to the world championships in February.

Originally, Ledecká wanted to return to the racing slopes next week at the World Cup in Lake Louise, Canada, where she won the downhill for the first time three years ago. However, she had to change her plans, as the treatment of a fragmentary collarbone fracture did not go as expected. After consulting with Austrian doctors and physiotherapist Pavlo Kolář, she therefore decided to postpone the start of the season and underwent another surgical procedure last week in Innsbruck.

“Thank you to Dr. Sperner from the Kettenbrücke clinic in Innsbruck and Robert Trenkwalder from Red Bull for providing top-notch care. I will do my best to return to the start of races next year in full force,” Ledecká said in a press release.

She would like to make it to the World Cup. The Downhill Championships in Courchevel and Méribel, France will begin on February 6, with snowboarders fighting for medals two weeks later in Bakuriani, Georgia. “Now I have to be patient. Keep your fingers crossed that everything heals as it should,” stated the two-time snowboarding world champion and winner of three World Cup races in downhill skiing.

The five-time winner of the Král bílé stopy survey still does not have a signed representation contract with the ski association, with which she did not agree on marketing rights.

Before the new season, Ledecká was getting used to new skis after switching from Atomic to the Kästle brand. Her implementation team also changed, and a new serviceman joined it.
