Sweet news: the unlucky Swiss skier can laugh again

Bad luck in games, good luck in love: This saying applies to a Swiss ski star who can smile again after a difficult time.

Nightmare, great injustice or just plain horror – there are many expressions that apply to Urs Kryenbühl's streak of bad luck. The fact is that the speed specialist, who reached the podium three times in the World Cup, was hit by injuries more often and more severely than almost any other top skier.


Kryenbühl was seriously injured in a horror fall in Kitzbühel in January 2021, including tearing the cruciate ligament in his knee. The now 29-year-old fought back and made his comeback the following winter, which ended with another cruciate ligament injury in February 2022. But that's not enough. Last winter Kryenbühl returned to the ski stage, but then fate struck again. Shortly before the turn of the year he tore his cruciate ligament again in a completely inconspicuous scene in Bormio.

It's understandable that the Swiss was devastated afterwards. Kryenbühl can now laugh again, which also has to do with a private moment of glory. His girlfriend Nadine announced on social media that the young couple is expecting their first child. “Love in the stomach,” she wrote under a photo in which she can be seen with her baby bump and boyfriend Urs.

Working for another comeback

Urs Kryenbühl has another great motivation on his way back to skiing. At the end of March, the Swiss declared that he would not have surgery to repair the torn cruciate ligament this time and would instead undergo conservative treatment. His goal is to compete in the World Cup again. He will probably do that in the future as a family man.
