USST Injury Updates: 12/19/03


Scott Macartney suffered an injury to his left knee in a training run accident Thursday. He was taken to a hospital in Innsbruck for an MRI and tests. He will be out of action for an undetermined time and is heading back to the USA for further evaluation.

Marco Sullivan, who suffered an injury in downhill training in Beaver Creek on Dec. 1, had successful surgery in Vail on Dec. 11. He is returning home to Squaw Valley and will be in a straight leg brace for around six weeks. At that time he will be evaluated as to the need for any additional surgery.

Erik Schlopy, who was injured in the men's giant slalom World Cup in Park City in November, is still on crutches but making good progress in his return to action. He is expected to be back on skis in the spring or early summer.
