VIDEO Overlay: 2 Skier’s Tear ACL on The Infamous Kitzbühel, Austria World Cup Downhill in Exact Same Spot/Way

SnowBrains |

This video overlay shows 3 identical Kitzbühel, Austria crashes from last week.  2 of these crashes ended up in season ending knee injuries (torn ACLs).

It was this jump in the video that caused the carnage. 

This jump took out 3 of the top downhill racers on the World Cup. 

They ended up shortening the event to only 30 racers due to these brutal injuries and poor visibility.

The 3 nearly identical crashes in the video are Lund Svindal, Hannes Reichelt, and Georg Steitberger.  Both Georg and Lund tore their ACLs.

This clip goes over exactly what went wrong during their run and it’s shocking how nearly identical all three of them are.

At the time of the crash, Lund Svindal was the overall points leader on the men’s World Cup this season.  Now, he’s out for the season.
