Lalive Comeback Cut Short

VAIL, Colo. (Oct. 19) - The comeback of three-time Olympian Caroline Lalive (Steamboat Springs, CO) was cut short this week when she suffered a season-ending knee injury while training in Pitztal, Austria. Lalive, 28, had made dramatic progress in her comeback from a 2006 pre-Olympic injury and was ready to start the 2007-08 season in Lake Louise in late November.

The training crash occurred Tuesday (Oct. 16). Lalive was flown to the Steadman-Hawkins Clinic in Vail for evaluation. According to U.S. Ski Team Medical Director Richard Quincy, Lalive suffered an injury to her right knee and will have surgery Oct. 23. She is expected to miss the season.

"We're disappointed for Caroline because she had worked so hard and was really prepared for the season," said U.S. Ski Team Alpine Director Jesse Hunt. "She's a great ski racer and we're hopeful she will be able to come back next year."

Lalive has been named to three Olympic and five World Championship teams in her 11-year career with the U.S. Ski Team. The former World Junior champion has five World Cup podiums in three different events.
