Skiers Kaisa Vickhoff Lie and Rosina Schneeberger suffered bad leg injuries following their horrendous crashes on Sunday.
Lie and Schneeberger both experienced devastating crashes during Sunday’s Super G at Val di Fassa that was won by Italy’s Federica Brignone.
Eurosport took the editorial decision not to publish the crashes, such was their distressing nature, in particular the audio.

The FIS Alpine Twitter account released a statement on Monday morning saying that Schneeberger had been diagnosed with a fracture of her right tibia and fibula.
They added that the Austrian was operated on at Innsbuck and that “the fracture was stabilised with an intramedullary nail.”
That update comes after the Norwegian ski federation said on Sunday that Vickhoff Lie had broken her left leg.
Like Schneeberger, Vickhoff Lie was taken to Innsbruck and underwent surgery.
“Investigations show that Kajsa has a broken leg,” the statement read.
