Do you remember February 2018? FC Basel was the reigning champion and cup winner. In the National League, SC Bern drew lonely circles at the top of the table and Marco Odermatt’s top result in the World Cup was 17th place. Above all, Mélanie Meillard was seen as the upcoming women’s ski star. When she was only 19, she traveled to the Olympic Games in Pyeongchang (SKor) as one of the hopefuls – no wonder, since the Valais native, who was born in Neuchâtel, had proven her talent a few days earlier by coming fourth in the World Cup slalom in Lenzerheide GR.

Meillard had nothing to lose and was eyeing an Olympic medal. But the ski god didn’t stick to the hoped-for script. On the contrary. The Winter Games in South Korea ended in disaster for Meillard – she tore the cruciate ligament in her left knee during training. “I’ll be back soon,” Meillard wrote on Instagram. She should be wrong.
