The Norwegian (28) got a sprained right knee during training in the Austrian Hinterreit on Saturday. Now he has received an answer to the survey.
The season is over for the Norwegian star alpinist.
He himself confirms this in a press release on Saturday night.
– It was as I feared, but as I did not hope for. I am in very good hands and have many around me with good experience, so this should go well. It’s extra boring when I’m in the shape of my life, but I’ll come back strongly, says Kilde.
– Anterior cruciate ligament injury
Kilde, in collaboration with the medical team in the Norwegian Ski Association, is now awaiting surgery in a short time.
– Aleksander was unlucky and got a twist of the right knee during training today. After further investigation, we have found an anterior cruciate ligament injury, says national team doctor for alpine skiing in the Norwegian Ski Association, Marc Strauss.
It was the Austrian TV channel ORF that first reported on Kilde’s fall on Saturday and that there was a risk that he had sustained a serious injury.
The Norwegian Ski Association could then confirm to NTB that Kilde had been sent to hospital.
– We can confirm that Kilde has injured himself during training. He is on his way to the hospital for an examination. We know more in a few hours, said the alpinists’ sports manager Claus Johan Ryste to NTB just before 2.30 pm on Saturday.
