Swiss skier Daniel Albrecht — the reigning super-combined world champion — is somehow in stable condition after flying ass-first for forty yards and landing on his neck and back in this brutal crash during a training run at the infamous Streif course in Kitzbühel, Austria. Doctors have placed Albrecht into an induced coma and are unsure yet whether he can or will make a full recovery.
Yikes. Pretty bad stuff. I would never wish this on a skier. Teenage skateboarders, sure. They’re barely human. But not a skier.
