Celebrating a comeback on snow is a moment of triumph for athletes who have overcome injuries.
Like every year, the white circuit sees many athletes forced to end their season due to injury.
In the shadow of the World Cup, these athletes have to spend a long time rehabilitating before they can return to the world’s elite. It’s often a long and difficult road, and a testament to their resilience, determination and love of the sport.
After several months of suffering, it’s finally time to put the skis back on and enjoy the emotional freedom that comes with it. Getting back on the skis is emotionally intense, and we can see the excitement the skiers feel via their posts on social media.
Frenchman Victor Muffat-Jeandet, who had already suffered a foot injury in the 21/22 season, celebrated his comeback in Sölden last year before suffering another injury in the Adelboden giant slalom. A long period of fighting is finally over.
