The Denver Post is reporting Mikaela Shiffrin’s injuries are likely to keep her out of the rest of this season.

Typically, grade 3 MCL tears require 4-8 weeks of healing time but the complicating bone bruise could hold Shiffrin off snow for longer if pain persists.

The technical ace who recently entered her first World Cup speed event, the super G at Lake Louise where she placed 15th, told the Denver Post while home recovering in Colorado that it is unlikely she will return to racing on the World Cup during the 2015-16 season.

Here is hoping for a speedy recovery, as well know professional skiers often face the adversity of injury to their legs and knees and it does not stop them for too long.

Good Stuff!
