Federica Brignone should take a stop

Riders in this news :  Federica BRIGNONE

 

Federica Brignone has decided to skip the Giant Slalom in Courchevel scheduled next Sunday. The 22 years Italian racer should take a break to have a surgery on her right ankle.

She has a cyst witch avoids her to skiing. It’s a logical decision for the 2011 silver medallist in Ginat Slalom

I came to a point where I couldn’t keep going. The pain became intolerable and I am struggling to even walk properly. I tried to keep going, but skiing became a pain and stopped being fun. I came to this decision in agreement with all my doctors, and at this point I don’t want to rush things. I am young and solely focused on healing properly and coming back to having fun on my skis. I am sure I will be back stronger then before.”, said Federica Brignone in a press release.
