It was only her second World Cup race, now there is a long compulsory break ahead: DSV driver Paulina Schlosser was seriously injured in the giant slalom.

Kranjska Gora - These are the seconds that every winter sports enthusiast fears: high speed, sudden loss of control, severe fall, great pain.

Paulina Schlosser experienced exactly this horror scenario on Saturday.

The 20-year-old DSV athlete from SC Kreenheinstetten slipped away after a few goals in her second World Cup race in Kranjska Gora, Slovenia, and was thrown across the slopes.

The severity of the injury could already be seen in the fall when it twisted the right leg. 

This was followed by anxious moments, Schlosser lay motionless in the snow for minutes.

She was treated on the slopes for around 20 minutes.

Ultimately, she had to be transported away in a rescue sledge.

After the race, the German Ski Association announced the devastating diagnosis: "Right lower leg fracture."

The victory in the giant slalom on Podkoren went to the Swede Sara Hector, who triumphed for the second time this Olympic winter after her success in Courchevel.

French Tessa Worley came in second, 0.96 seconds behind, followed by last year's winner Marta Bassino from Italy (+1.32).

Emma Aicher, as the second German starter, could not make it into the top 30.

She still needs a place in the top 15 to qualify for the Beijing Winter Olympics.

The 18-year-old hopeful has the next chance on this Sunday, when a slalom is on the program for the women in the same place.

Jessica Hilzinger is still missing after a positive corona test.

The top duo around the American Mikaela Shiffrin and Petra Vlhova from Slovakia then hopes for an increase in performance.

On Saturday Shiffrin landed in seventh place, Vlhova behind in 15th place. Because there is not enough snow in Maribor, the races will be held in Kranjska Gora this weekend.
