Mar. 04, 2015
GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN, Germany (AP) — Viktoria Rebensburg has ended the World Cup season after injuring her left knee in a crash in training ahead of this weekend's women's races in Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
The German skiing federation says Rebensburg sprained her left knee during giant slalom training on Wednesday in Bad Wiessee, Germany. The 2010 Olympic champion says her ski caught a gate "and twisted my knee."
Rebensburg has been the only German contender in speed races this season. She is third in World Cup downhill standings.
A Super-G and a downhill are scheduled for the weekend in Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
