Tina Weirather withdraws from women’s super-G with injury
KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) — Tina Weirather of Liechtenstein has pulled out of Saturday’s women’s Olympic super-G after failing to recover from a training crash.
Switzerland team spokesman Lorenz Liechti says Weirather was in too much pain after warming up and inspecting the course early Saturday.
The 24-year-old Weirather, who trains with the Swiss team, was an expected medal contender. She is one of only three women to win a World Cup super-G this season.
Weirather bruised her right shin in a crash in downhill training last Sunday.
She is also entered in the giant slalom, which is scheduled for Tuesday.
