It's the first serious injury for the 25-year-old Gisin, who won the Olympic title in Alpine combined last year and silver in that event at the 2017 world championships. "Life went always up up up and it became faster and faster. So now it'll slow down for a moment," Gisin wrote in an Instagram post . "And I am actually grateful for this."
Gisin's injury comes one month after her elder brother Marc sustained rib, back and pelvic injuries in a hard fall in a World Cup downhill in Val Gardena, Italy. The world championships will be held in Are, Sweden, from Feb. 5-17.
