Season end for Austrian Roland Leitinger

Roland Leitinger seriously injured his knee during today's (9 November 2021) parallel training session on the Reiteralm. The runner-up from Sölden suffered a tear in the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in a fall and will therefore be out for the entire Olympic season.

“That is extremely bitter. Now history repeats itself. I already missed the season in 2018 because of a torn cruciate ligament, "said Roland Leitinger after the devastating diagnosis.

Leitinger continues: “At the moment I feel a great emptiness. I have to let that sink in for now. "

The 30-year-old giant slalom specialist would like to have an operation promptly.
