Johnson Sidelined for Beijing 2022 with Knee Injury

Sadly, downhiller and Olympic medal hopeful, Breezy Johnson, announced on Tuesday that she will sit out of the upcoming Olympic Games due to a knee injury sustained at Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy. 

In a post on Instagram, she shared, 

I have to announce that I have unfortunately injured my knee and must withdraw from the Olympics. It was the pleasure of my life to represent @teamusa at the Games in 2018. And all I have wanted ever since was to come back, stronger, faster, to win a gold medal. But I crashed in Cortina the other day and immediately felt a massive crack in my knee. It was a large chunk of cartilage that is partially dislodged. I was given the option to try to compete on it. But I don't think that that is realistic or smart. I could do more damage and I certainly don't think I will be skiing my best.

Johnson, who was seventh in the downhill at PyeongChang in 2018, was a favorite—along with Italy's Sofia Goggia, who was also injured recently at Cortina—for the downhill win in Beijing.
 

As Bill Pennington from the New York Times wrote in his exclusive, 

The recovery Johnson faces will not be her first comeback from serious injury. She had to recover from a tibial plateau fracture to make the U.S. ski team competing in Pyeongchang. Seven months after those Olympics, she ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee in training and missed the entire World Cup season. In June 2019, she tore two ligaments in her left knee.

Now facing another reconstructive knee surgery, Johnson said she was motivated to make another comeback because so many other top racers had done so and gone on to record their greatest accomplishments. As an example, she mentioned Aleksander Aamodt Kilde, who had his anterior cruciate ligament rebuilt last year after a fall in training and is having a dominant season this winter.

“You see that and we’re all optimists, we all hope this injury is the last one,” Johnson said. “You go through periods of time where it breaks your heart and it crushes you because the sport will never love you back. It just can’t because it’s a sport. But you love it so much you do it anyway.”

Johnson will be cheering on her teammates and looking ahead on her road to recovery, once again.

Ganong Leads Four Americans Into Top 25 In Kitzbuehel Downhill

Four Americans broke into the top 25 in the second Kitzbuehel downhill of the weekend, led by Travis Ganong in 11th. Bryce Bennett was 0.12 seconds behind Ganong in 12th. Jared Goldberg matched his all-time best finish on the Streif in 19th, and Steven Nyman rounded out the day of point finishes for the U.S. men in 21st. 

Heavy snowfall let up from Friday and Saturday, allowing the downhill to start from its traditional start house on Sunday. But in exchange for a cease in snowfall, the men had to battle heavy cloud coverage that made an already intimidating Hahnenkamm track even more fearsome. Racers flew through the Mausefalle jump in a cloud, fighting fog and flat light on top of the already wild terrain throughout the entirety of the course. 

Switzerland’s Beat Fuez and Marco Odermatt skied fearlessly to come out on top, finishing first and second respectively. Austria’s Daniel Hemetsberger followed close behind in third. Friday's winner, Aleksander Aamodt Kilde, finished in sixth but continues to lead the men's downhill standings over Fuez.

Fellow Americans Sam Morse finished just outside of the points in 35th. Erik Arvidsson finished his first World Cup downhill in Kitzbuehel in 43rd. Ryan Cochran-Siegle did not finish.

Before heading to Beijing to compete in the 2022 Winter Olympic Games, the men’s speed circuit has one last stop in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, from Jan. 18-23.

Shiffrin 16th in Cortina; Cashman Scores Points

Mikaela Shiffrin led the U.S. Alpine Ski Team in super-G at Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy, finishing 16th, Sunday. Keely Cashman also scored points, skiing into 28th place.

Hometown hero Elena Curtoni of Italy took her second career win with Tamara Tippler of Austria in second and Michelle Gisin of Switzerland third. World Cup super-G standing leader Federica Brignone of Italy was fourth. Saturday’s downhill winner and speed sensation Sofia Goggia crashed hard on the course and did not finish. She skied to the finish and is being evaluated.

The Italian woman are on fire heading into the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022, having won the last three straight races on the World Cup circuit—Brignone won the super-G in Zauchensee, Austria, followed by Goggia and Curtoni’s back-to-back wins in Cortina.

Both Shiffrin and Cashman skied well in the fast super-G but felt like they have more in the tank. “I skied a little bit passive, not super aggressive,” said Cashman. “I’m not that happy with it, but that’s ski racing.”

Though it wasn’t the result she wanted, the Olympic excitement is starting to set in for first-time Olympian Cashman, who overcame an injury over the last year to return to the World Cup stage during an Olympic year and make the team. “Obviously this is something I’ve been working toward my entire life,” she said. “It feels really good to be here and to make my first Olympic team and I’m very excited about it.”

Jackie Wiles, Alix Wilkinson, Mo Lebel, and Tricia Mangan did not finish but are OK. 

Shiffrin remains first in the overall World Cup standings, while Brignone leads the super-G World Cup standings.

The women stay in Italy for giant slalom in Kronplatz, Italy, on Tuesday before the final weekend of speed events in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, before heading to Beijing.

Winters Top 15 In Kitzbuehel Slalom

Luke Winters charged through snowy conditions and challenging terrain to take 11th in Saturday's slalom at the Hahenkamm-Rennen in Kitzbuehel, Austria. Winters, who has fought rigorously to get into the points from the back of the pack throughout the season, was not incredibly happy with his skiing but was thankful to have finished two runs in tough conditions. Twenty-two men in the field did not finish the first run, and 11 men did not finish the second run, leaving 19 men standing in the points by the end of second run.

"I know there's a lot more speed there and I know I can ski a lot better than that, said Winters. "But it is what it is, it's Kitzbuehel, and it's crazy, there's terrain, and not one turn is the same. So I'm happy with my execution as far as keeping it rolling and keeping the speed at the bottom of both runs but I know there's more there. It feels good to end up 11th with that skiing, get some more points and score another result which all helps me." 

Dave Ryding of Great Britain took the win for the first time in his career at the age of 35. Norway's young gun Lucas Braathen took second, followed by fellow Norwegian Henrik Kristoffersen in third. Ryding made history with his victory, becoming Great Britain's first-ever alpine skiing World Cup victor. 

Ben Ritchie qualified for a second run in 25th from a start number of 43 but did not finish his second run, straddling mid-way through the course. Jett Seymour did not qualify for a second run. George Steffey and Alex Leever did not finish first run.

Next on the men's slalom circuit is the legendary night slalom in Schladming, the last slalom stop before the men head to Beijing for the Winter Olympic Games. On Friday, Winters was officially named as a member of the U.S. Olympic Alpine Team and will represent the U.S. Ski Team in the men's slalom in his first-ever Olympics at the age of 24.

Wiles Top 15 in Cortina Downhill; Wilkinson Scores First World Cup Points in 18th

On a windy and cold day in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy, Jackie Wiles led the U.S. Alpine Ski Team with her best result in four years, finishing 14th in the FIS World Cup downhill. 21-year-old Alix Wilkinson, in just her seventh career World Cup, scored her first points with an impressive 18th place.  

After crashing hard in the Zauchensee downhill, Sofia Goggia of Italy didn’t miss a beat, taking her fourth downhill win of the season. Rebecca Siebenhofer of Austria was second and Ester Ledecka, the unpredictable Czech snowboarder who won the 2018 Olympic super-G, landed in third for her first podium in a year.

While Wiles has stepped on the World Cup podium twice in her career, including once in Cortina with 20-time Cortina winner and Olympic champion Lindsey Vonn in 2018, she suffered an injury right before the PyeongChang Olympics and has struggled to find her form on race day. But she put down an aggressive and clean run to make a triumphant return to the top 15.

“I’m super super psyched,” said Wiles. “It’s just a sigh of release finally to get back in the top 15. It’s been a battle now for a while. I know I’ve been able to ski well in training but somehow putting it to race day has been difficult. It feels incredible and is something that I can build off now with confidence going forward.”

Wiles will look to continue her trajectory as one of the 11 women representing the Team USA in alpine skiing at the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022.

Young Wilkinson, who hails from Palisades Tahoe, burst into her first World Cup points with a clean run down the 2026 Olympic venue to finish 18th. She threw her hands up in the finish corral to celebrate and was giddy with excitement after the race. “I’m so happy!” she said. “This is the most amazing feeling. I feel like I’ve been close to points this season but to actually do it in Cortina? This feels unreal. I’m so happy.”

Wiles was thrilled to share her day with Wilkinson, who acts as Wilkinson's mentor on the World Cup circuit. "That was so cool to see and be a part of," said Wiles. "She is 21 and scored her first points. Eight years ago, I was 21 and scoring my first points too at this same venue."

Notably missing from the day was Breezy Johnson, who has finished second to Goggia twice in downhills during the 2021-22 season and was second in the downhill standings coming into Cortina, but took a big crash in Friday’s downhill training and sat out the race.

Keely Cashman finished just outside of the points in 33rd. Tricia Mangan was 46th.

Mikaela Shiffrin did not race in the Cortina downhill but maintained the overall lead in the World Cup standings. Goggia remains first in the downhill standings.

Next up, the women race super-G on Sunday to finish out the weekend in Cortina. Shiffrin announced on Saturday via Instagram that she plans to race in the super-G.

U.S. Ski & Snowboard Nominates Snowboard Team Roster For Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022

Snowboard olympics

U.S. Ski & Snowboard announced today its nominations for the U.S. Olympic Snowboard Team to represent Team USA at the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022. The nominations are to be confirmed by the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee when it formally announces the U.S. Olympic Team.

The 26 member U.S. Snowboard Team is one of the strongest teams ever nominated in halfpipe, slopestyle, big air and snowboardcross, and includes defending gold medalists Chloe Kim and Shaun White in halfpipe, and Red Gerard and Jamie Anderson in slopestyle. Kim, a 2018 Olympic gold medalist and the 2021-22 season’s undefeated halfpipe champion, heads to the 2022 Games as the heavy favorite. White comes in as a three-time Olympic gold medalist competing in his fifth and final Olympics. 2018 gold medalist Red Gerard is coming off two wins at the last Olympic tryout events, and two-time Olympic champion Jamie Anderson earned the top podium spot at the final tryout event at Mammoth Mountain.

Returning Olympians for the snowboardcross team include 2006 Olympic silver medalist Lindsey Jacobellis and 2014 Olympic bronze medalist Alex Deibold. The snowboardcross mixed team event will debut at the 2022 Games on February 12. 

Snowboarding has 11 events at the 2022 Olympic Winter Games, the majority of which will be contested in the Zhangjiakou Genting Snow Park, with big air taking place at the Big Air Shougang venue.

ATHLETE QUOTES:

Taylor Gold
I'm very stoked to make the Olympic Team again and especially to do it with some of the tricks and lines that originally drew me to snowboarding. Halfpipe riding is my art form and going in for my second time with more years under my belt, I feel like I've been able to develop my style and become the rider that I've always wanted to be. I'm grateful for the opportunity to express myself and what I love about snowboarding to the world.”

Red Gerard
"I’m feeling really good and ready to go to Beijing and snowboard my best. As far as our team goes, this is the strongest one I’ve ever seen for U.S. slopestyle. I had such cool peers during the last Olympics and they really watched over me, but the U.S. Snowboard Team is a different one this time, with new kids coming in. We’re all about the same age, so I think it’ll be a lot of fun and I'm hoping I can be the guy who they can put their trust in and ask me anything about the Olympics. The really cool thing over the past two years has been seeing all of us grow. It's about each of us, but it's also about this team and we’re all supporting each other nonstop to the top!"

Chloe Kim
Time seriously does fly! I can’t believe it’s already been four years! I’m so excited to represent Team USA in the Beijing Olympics. Thank you all for the continuous love and support on this crazy journey. I can’t wait!” 

Shaun White
"Every Olympics is different—how I went into Italy was so different than Pyeongchang. Right now I'm focused on training smarter, not harder. I’m listening to my body and knowing when to push and when to pull back."

Jamie Anderson
“I’m excited to be named to my third U.S. Olympic Team. There’s definitely a bit of pressure going back as the two-time defending champ, but I know I have already accomplished more than I could dream, so I’m just trying to enjoy the whole process, stay in the moment and be grateful for this opportunity.”

Sean FitzSimons
“It’s an absolute dream come true going to Beijing with a bunch of really good homies! Mind boggling! I never really expected it, but super stoked. I’m excited for good times in China.”

Nick Baumgartner
“I’m so excited to have earned the opportunity to represent Team USA, my family, friends and the Upper Peninsula in my fourth Olympic Games. It means the world to me to be able to continue to show people what is possible when you dream BIG, work hard and never give up.”

Tessa Maud
“I’m so excited to be named to the Olympic Team as I’ve been dreaming about this since I was a little girl. I can’t wait to be able to compete with all of my friends that I’ve made throughout the years. And I think this Olympics is going to be a very special one.” 

Chase Josey
“It means alot to be named to the Team this year, just to feel that all my hard work over the last few years had paid off. It’s an honor to represent Team USA again.” 

Dusty Henricksen
“It is pretty unbelievable honesty. I’m so so honored to have this opportunity to go represent for my family, friends and everyone who has helped to get me to this point and USA for sure!” 

Chris Corning
“I am very excited for Beijing. I have worked very hard to make it to this point and I am proud to represent the USA in the Olympics for a second time. I feel more confident going into this Olympics compared to 2018! I am ready to do my best and make America proud!”

Lucas Foster  
“It feels absolutely amazing to make the Olympic team and I’m stoked to go to Beijing with riders I respect and admire. Making this team has been a far fetched dream of mine since I was super young and watching it unfold these past few years has been pretty amazing.”

Hailey Langland
“I am super excited to be named to the Team and going to Beijing. I cannot believe that this is going to be the second time around that I’m going to go overseas and represent my snowboarding and my country and I’m super, super proud of that, especially the team that’s coming with me. I couldn’t be more excited that Red’s going with me as well as Jamie, and our friend Sean—I’m super proud of him for making the team as well. I think these Olympics are going to be really fun and I’m glad I get to do it with my best friends.”

Maddie Mastro
“I’m so excited that I have been named to the Olympic team, this will be my second Olympics and I’m so grateful for that. I’m just excited to go and snowboard, and I can’t wait to get over to Beijing and just represent snowboarding and my country.”

Courtney Rummel
“I’m so excited and honored to represent the USA, my family, friends, and Wisconsin at the Olympics. This is a dream come true and I want to thank everyone who has supported me! Team USA is unbelievable and I’m so proud to be a part of it!!”

Faye Gulini
“I’m honored to be representing Team USA in my fourth Olympic Winter Games. It never was easy qualifying for the team, and it certainly hasn’t got any easier. This season was especially challenging—our team is the strongest team I have ever been a part of, with only so many Olympic spots available. From 2010 (my first Games) to now so much has changed. From a rookie to a veteran and everything in between, but the goal and the dream remain the same. Let’s go Team USA!”

COACH QUOTES

Mike Jankowski, Halfpipe, Slopestyle & Big Air Head Coach
“These riders absolutely represent the core of what it means to be a U.S. snowboarder. I am incredibly honored to be a part of this 2022 team behind the team, with certified legends Shaun White and Jamie Anderson, plus legends in the making Chloe Kim, Red Gerard and everyone on the team. And we are so grateful for all the families, communities and mountains around the country who have been a key part of their development. Let’s go Team U.S.A.!” 

Rick Shimpeno, Halfpipe Pro Team Head Coach
This halfpipe team is exceptional. We have two returning gold medalists and they are backed up by a host of very talented riders. We have the roster to head to Beijing and shake things up.” 

JJ Thomas, Halfpipe Team Coach
“I couldn’t be more proud of our Olympic halfpipe team this year. It’s a great mix of seasoned and decorated vets like Shaun and Chloe, mixed with young guns like Lucas Foster and Tessa Maud. I think we’re all in for a great two weeks in China!” 

Mike Ramirez, Slopestyle/Big Air Pro Team Head Coach
“It’s been an honor to watch this crew growing up in snowboarding and in life. This team’s strength lies in the constant pursuit of progression with fun as a priority. I feel blessed to be able to serve them in their quest to make our country proud and show the world how awesome snowboarding is.”

Dave Reynolds, Slopestyle/Big Air Pro Team Head Coach
“The U.S. Snowboard Team is looking great! We’re bringing back our two defending champions, plus we have a solid group of veterans with Chris, Julia, Hailey and an excited group of new riders including Dusty, Sean and Courtney. They’re all hungry and excited and as prepared as they can be going into these Olympics.”

Peter Foley, Snowboardcross Head Coach
“I’m really proud of this entire group of athletes and staff. I would be happy to have any of the U.S. athletes who have been competing for Olympic spots as a part of the team and it’s always so difficult that only four make the team. Like everyone these days, we have had to face all kinds of adversity this season, but we knew that going in and our focus has been about being the very best at overcoming adversity and using that to our advantage. I know we are taking some real contenders to China and that’s exciting!”
