“Thought they had to amputate the leg”

Swedish speed driver experiences horror after knee surgery

Lisa Hörnblad is considered a Swedish speed talent. She hasn’t made her breakthrough yet – injuries keep slowing her down. Now she had to worry about her leg.


Lisa Hörnblad is not in the mood to laugh at the moment.

In the second half of the 2017/18 season, Lisa Hörnblad (26) experienced the most successful months of her career. In the European Cup, the Swedish speed specialist climbs onto the podium six times within two months – four times in Super-G and once each in downhill and in combination, celebrating two victories.

The talent is there, but she hasn’t made her breakthrough in the World Cup yet. Her best result: 11th place in the downhill. Since her debut in 2017, she has contested only 32 World Cup races. Injuries keep slowing her down. After a cruciate ligament rupture in August 2019, she has been away from the World Cup stage for almost two and a half years. Shortly after her comeback, she falls heavily in January 2022: total damage to the knee. Returning to the snow this fall, here’s another setback.
