TWO of Alpine skiing’s biggest stars will miss next month’s world championships because of season-ending surgery.
Ted Ligety of the United States and Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway — each with five career world titles — both announced in Instagram posts yesterday they will now focus on returning for next season.
Ligety’s persistent back problem has denied him a chance to win a fourth straight giant slalom title. He is expected to have surgery imminently.
“Unfortunately surgery (microdiscectomy) means my season is over and a chance to defend my GS title again at World Champs JuJu Smith-Schuster Youth Jersey ,” Ligety wrote on his Instagram account.
The 32-year-old American’s five world titles include three in giant slalom from 2011, 2013 and 2015. The world championships are set for February 6-19 in St Moritz, Switzerland, where Ligety won in February 2014 in the last World Cup race before the Sochi Olympics.
Svindal posted a photo from a hospital bed, four days after he left Switzerland ahead of the classic downhill in Wengen to seek treatment on the right knee he seriously injured a year ago.
“Together with the medical team I took the decision to do another surgery,” Svindal wrote. “What they found was a meniscus that was no longer attached to the bone.”
A new setback for the 34-year-old follows a fast return to form in his comeback. He took top-three finishes in downhill and super-G races in Val d’Isere, France T. J. Watt Youth Jersey , and Val Gardena, Italy.
Confirming he would not ski again this winter, Svindal added: “Sounds familiar... But if it can be better next year, it’s more than worth it :)”.
Svindal won the last of his world titles in 2013, in downhill in Schladming, Austria. He also took a bronze in super-G behind Ligety.
Ligety expects to compete next season and defend his Olympic giant slalom title at the Pyeongchang Games. “I will be back strong and fast again,” wrote Ligety Le'Veon Bell Youth Jersey , who also won Olympic gold in the combined at the 2006 Turin Games.
