  • Shit happens. And that's exactly what's happened this time. I was out for a little run with the rest of the team in Sölden Austria. We ended the session playing around with a ball. Just holding it up in the air between us. Suddenly I felt something snap in my leg and I knew right away that something was wrong. Achilles. We went straight to the hospital in Innsbruck where I got fast and great service. They concluded the achilles was torn and after 5 minutes of talking I went straight to surgery. A real injury and extremely bad timing just as the season is about to start. But now that it's happened there's not much I can do. Now it's all about looking ahead. Nobody can say 100% sure how long the recovery will take, but I'm ready for the weeks to that are coming. I'll stay in Austria for a while before I go back to Norway and discuss further rehab with the crew at the Olympic Center in Oslo. Like I said. Shit happens!
