LALIVE REBOUNDING AFTER SEASON-ENDING INJURY
STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. (April 4) - Three-time Olympian Caroline Lalive (Steamboat Springs, CO), who was used to independence and mobility during a decade on the U.S. Ski Team, is starting to lengthen the “leash” she’s been on since shattering a kneecap and suffering other injuries in a World Cup training crash.
“I’m adjusting to a different-paced life,” Lalive said. “I’m doing therapy, pilates and so forth, and I’m gonna start school soon. I’m trying to keep myself busy.
“It’s definitely a big adjustment for me, from being active in skiing to not doing anything...but it’s good, just being here in Steamboat. I’ve been able to see my family quite a bit and I’m moving forward.”
Despite the time-honored saying, her third time wasn’t a charm - Lalive, 26, shattered her left patella, fractured a femur and tore a quad tendon Jan. 25 during training in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy. Coincidentally, that was the day Lalive - who had been second in a downhill at Val d’Isere, France in December - was named to her third Olympic Team; instead of competing, she watched the Winter Games of Torino on television at home.
