Five-time Olympic Alpine skiing medalist Kjetil Jansrud is sidelined by a knee ligament injury resulting from his crash in a World Cup super-G in Beaver Creek, Colorado, on Friday.
Jansrud, 36, is not on the start list for Saturday’s downhill in Beaver Creek (1 p.m. ET, NBCSN) and will fly home to Oslo on Monday to be re-evaluated, according to Norway’s federation.
It’s too early to make any comment on possible surgery or even the extent of the injury, a national team doctor said in a press release.
A sled was brought out to transport Jansrud after his Friday crash, but after being tended to for nearly 10 minutes, he glided to the bottom of the course on his own before being taken to a hospital.
