The German ski racer Paulina Schlosser apparently seriously injured herself in the World Cup giant slalom in Kranjska Gora, Slovenia.

The 20-year-old from the Kreenheinstetten Ski Club on the Swabian Alb fell in the first round of her second World Cup race.

Just a few days ago she made her debut at the slalom in Zagreb.

After just a few goals, the 20-year-old slipped away with her skis and flung across the piste.

The right leg twisted in the process.

Injury to the lower leg

Schlosser had to be treated on the slopes for more than 20 minutes before she could be transported away with the rescue sledge.

As the German Ski Association (DSV) initially announced, she suffered an injury to her lower leg.

An exact diagnosis is still pending.

Schlosser had achieved a top 5 placement in both slalom and giant slalom at the European Youth Olympic Winter Festival 2019.

At the Junior World Championships in Bansko in 2021 she finished fourth in slalom and eleventh in giant slalom.

Aicher also missed the final

Emma Aicher, the second German starter on Berg Vitranc, missed the final with a gap of 3.33 seconds on the leading Swede Sara Hector.

She is followed by ex-world champion Tessa Worley from France (+0.08 seconds) and parallel world champion Marta Bassino from Italy (+0.23 seconds).
