After an early season full of some season-ending (and in some cases, life-threatening) crashes on ski racecourses, a big debate has sprung up among racers, spectators and the sport's governing body about how to make ski racing more safe while keeping it
Well that didn't take long. One of ski racing's most anticipated comebacks is coming to an end -- even if the anticipation lasted a mere week. After announcing his return to ski racing on October 6th, Austrian god Hermann Maier has changed his mind and will stay in retirement.
Move over, Lance Armstrong. The comeback king of skiing is planning yet another return: Austrian Hermann Maier has resumed training for a run at the 2010 World Cup after a killer knee injury sidelined him last March. Maier plans to miss the season's first few races but return by the end of November, at the Cup's Lake Louise stop.
