The unbelievable happened....

I was training in Nakiska last week getting ready for the Olympics in Vancouver. 
Our coaches worked really hard on preparing the hill by injecting the whole course.
As it was one of the first times for me to train on a really icy course, I skied well and learned a lot.
On one of my last days of training, I slid on my side and as I wanted to push myself up with my hand, my left ski caught and I felt a tweak in my left knee.  Right away, I knew something was seriously wrong. 
I could not believe it! At this point I knew I would no longer be a part of the Olympics. 
I was really disappointed after all the work that I had done.
To make a long story short, I tore my ACL, had surgery, and now I am working on my recovery. 

I will keep you guys posted,

I am going to Vancouver - yes, I am going to the Olympics! Wow, I am so excited!
I was just told only a few days ago that I will be able to participate in the Olympics at Whistler Mountain. What an opportunity!  I will be racing the Olympic GS. 

At the moment I am relaxing and recovering from the last weeks. Because I still have almost two weeks until the GS race, I will soon be leaving for Nakiska ( Alberta) where I will be training and  preparing myself so that I will be able to give it my best at the race.

I am really happy about being able to compete in my first Olympic games, especially because they are hosted in Canada.
It is a dream come true for me.  I will compete for Canada , give it my best and think of my buddies John, JP, Frank, Larisa and Kelly!
An experience I am bound to never forget.

Talk to you soon,
