On Thursday, Swiss skier Mauro Caviezel fell during training in Garmisch-Partenkirchen and suffered a traumatic brain injury, which was later clarified as a “severe concussion” by head coach Tom Stauffer.

Swiss-Ski later reported the same diagnosis but also indicated Caviezel sustained an injury to a ligament and a bone bruise in his left knee.


On Sunday, Caviezel reemerged on social media, sharing footage of the crash and saying (through translation), “Falling down is part of life — but also (is) getting up.”

Caviezel also shared a photo of himself with crutches appearing to be doing well.

The 32-year-old, who took home the small globe in super G last season, was on the mend from an Achilles tendon injury he sustained over the summer. He came back strong enough to record his career-first World Cup victory last month in Val d’Isere.
