Olympic super G bronze medalist Andrew Weibrecht (Lake Placid, NY) suffered a dislocated shoulder when he crashed Saturday in the men’s World Cup downhill in Norway. According U.S. Ski Team Medical Director Richard Quincy, the injury will take Weibrecht out for the remainder of the season.

Weibrecht’s second season on the World Cup was a strong one for the 24-year-old from Lake Placid.  He consistently placed in the top 15, including a fourth at Beaver Creek in the super combined. 

Didier Cuche pocketed his fifth World Cup victory of the season, winning the downhill.
