Calgary, Alta. (October 26, 2017) – Nor-Am Cup overall winner and overall slalom winner, Ali Nullmeyer (Toronto, Ont.), tore both her right and left anterior cruciate ligaments (ACL) and tore her left lateral meniscus in a fall during training on Thursday. Nullmeyer was training in Europe for the upcoming Sölden, AUT Audi FIS World Cup opener.
Nullmeyer is now headed back to Canada and is anticipating undergoing surgery next week. She expects a full return to the World Cup circuit for the 2018-19 season and will be cheering on her teammates throughout the upcoming season.
