Kostelic back on skiis for new season

ZAGREB: Croatia’s triple Olympic champion Janica Kostelic is back on skiis preparing for the new season following a successful recovery from recent surgery on her troublesome right knee, Croatia’s ski federation spokesman Ozren Mueller said Sunday.

Kostelic, who had her third knee operation in July, started training in giant-slalom and super-G in Zermatt, Switzerland, Mueller said, adding that for now it has been decided that she will go on the US tour of the World Cup. “I feel great. It is such a pleasure being back on skis, I enjoy every curve. Really, nothing can be compared to skiing,” Kostelic told AFP, speaking from Zermatt.

The 21-year-old dual World Cup winner and her brother Ivica, who won the men’s slalom world title, will stay in Zermatt until Wednesday and are to continue with preparations in Hintertux, Austria. Kostelic, dubbed the Snow Queen, had her first operation in March and the second in May. —AFP
