No comeback for Aleksander Aamodt Kilde?

Good news from Aleksander Aamodt Kilde: The Norwegian is no longer dependent on his wheelchair and is on the mend. However, he himself questions whether he will return to skiing.

Around eight weeks after Aleksander Aamodt Kilde's horror crash on the descent in Wengen, Switzerland, the Norwegian recently returned with an update about his health. He crashed into the safety net at around 100 km/h and was then in danger of losing his life, as his girlfriend and fellow ski superstar Mikaela Shiffrin recently revealed.

Kilde made the following statement on social media: “I am super happy to announce that my wheelchair journey is over. It was seven weeks, and these seven weeks were some of the most challenging in my life.” He also writes about his psychological trauma and asks himself the question that is probably bothering ski fans most at the moment: Will Kilde make a comeback to ski racing give? A question that he cannot currently answer himself.

Accident still bothers him

“I'm still thinking about the accident. It's hard to imagine skiing again. It's about how I'll feel when I go back or whether I'll go back at all,” he said. It remains to be seen whether the fall will actually end his career.

The Norwegian speed specialist celebrated his greatest successes to date with two medals at the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing and two silver medals at the 2023 Alpine Ski World Championships in Courchevel and Méribel.
