Coady forced to withdraw from Slopestyle due to injury

11 February 2018

SNOWBOARD: Today Snowboarder Tess Coady was due to compete in the Women’s Slopestyle qualifications at the PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games.

After completing a course inspection at 12.00pm Coady sustained an injury on her first run in official training.

The 17-year-old fell on her final jump of the run injuring her left knee.

She was immediately escorted from the course and attended to by the Australian Team doctor and physio who confirmed she had ruptured her ACL, meaning she will not be able to compete at the Games.

Coady, the youngest member of the 2018 Team at her first Olympic Games, expressed her disappointment.

“I am extremely disappointed with injuring my knee before I had the chance to compete,” she said.

“It’s a very difficult time but I’m getting great support from the medical team and my teammates.

“I’m going to work hard to come back even better in the future.”
