Ski jumper Urša Bogataj ends season early due to injury

LJUBNO OB SAVINJI - Ski jumper Urša Bogataj, who suffered a fall at the women's ski jumping Silvester Tour in Ljubno ob Savinji on Sunday, tore her cruciate ligament, which means she will not be able to compete any more this season, the Slovenian Ski Association said in a press release. The two-time Olympic winner fell in the first round after touching down at 89.5 metres. She was carried from the arena on a stretcher and taken to the Ljubljana UKC hospital. She has already been released from the hospital with her leg immobilised, but she will have to undergo a surgery later.
