Wiles Out for Remainder of Season with Minor Knee Injury
Olympian and Land Rover U.S. Alpine Ski Team athlete Jackie Wiles is back in the States and has gotten surgery for the second time this season, following a minor knee injury sustained prior to the FIS Ski World Championship downhill at Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy.
Wiles had surgery earlier this season, following a crash in the super-G at Val d'Isere, France that left her with a broken clavicle, but she returned to competition in early January and was able to compete at Cortina 2021. She provided an update on Instagram following her return to the States and her surgery.
Three months later, left Europe with two injuries and now here we go for another surgery.
Sadly my season is ending early once again. Hurt my knee warming up for the downhill race in Cortina. I’m frustrated, yet eager to push back stronger. I came into this season finally feeling like my old self but immediately battled injuries all season. Luckily it’s nothing serious just a little clean up.
Already missing the feeling of skiing but until then the grind and focus won’t stop! Good luck to my girls racing this weekend in San Pellegrino. I’ll be cheering loudly from home!! 💙🇺🇸💪🏼🎉
