Onlangs werd Basti Hannemann tweede tijdens de 4**** Qualifier in Hochfügen. Twee dagen daarna brak hij zijn hiel tijdens het skiën. Dit betekent voor hem een vervroegd einde van het seizoen.

Lees hieronder een kort interview met Freeride World Tour:

FWT: “Basti, bad news, left heel broken, just two days after your (end) 2nd place at FWQ 4* Hochfuegen – how did it happen?”

Well, that’s how fast a season can change… ended up 2nd at the 4* Qualifier in Hochfügen, but 2 days later I broke my left heel while skiing. Season ending injury. But in our sport we also have to deal with injuries.

FWT: “How did the surgery go?”

Apparently really good. Everything is back there where it should be, fixed with a big plate and some screws. My bone structure is pretty good and I (also) didn’t get an inflammation.

FWT: “What are your plans (to come back strong ;-))?

Puh, we’ll see… I have to walk 2 – 3 months on crutches, then there’ll be (a) rehab. If everything works out really good I should be ready again end of summer. But I’ll take it easy, see how my foot is felling and then make a decision.

FWT wishes you strength and best for a fast recovery!
