Nicola Spirig was caught in a collective fall involving five bikes on Friday in Zuoz (GR). The Olympic champion suffers from a small fracture of a bone in her left elbow.
Nicola Spirig will therefore have to adapt his training in the coming weeks. “I have to try to leave my left arm alone, “she said in a statement.” Biking on a roller, running in the water and going for a walk is still possible. Running normally should be good within a week, however swimming will be prohibited for several weeks“said the London 2012 Olympic champion and Rio 2016 silver medalist.
Will this setback have an influence on the season of Nicola Spirig, who was to play his first competitions at the end of August? It is still too early to know.
