Tessa Worley suffers knee injury
COURCHEVEL, France -- Another French skiing world champion has been ruled out of the Sochi Olympics with a knee injury after Tessa Worley crashed during a World Cup slalom race on Tuesday.
The giant slalom world champion slipped during her first run in the morning, landing on her back and twisting forward before her leg caught in the protective netting. The International Ski Federation says she tore her right anterior cruciate ligament and is "ruled out for the entire season."
The 24-year-old Worley won a giant slalom race in St. Moritz on Sunday.
In September, downhill world champion Marion Rolland ruptured a knee ligament in a training crash, ending her hope of competing in the Sochi Games.
