CORTINA D’AMPEZZO, Italy — American skier Bella Wright sustained just a minor injury after crashing in a World Cup downhill race on Saturday.
Wright had been airlifted off the course but later returned to the finish area with bandages on her chin.
“Just a little chin laceration, no biggie,” the U.S. Ski Team said on X with a photo of Wright giving a thumbs-up.
Wright lost control midway through her run down the Olympia delle Tofane course and was immediately tended to by medical personnel.
Then she was loaded onto a stretcher and taken off the mountain by helicopter.
On Friday, teammate Mikaela Shiffrin and Olympic downhill champion Corinne Suter were also airlifted off the mountain.
