Everyone has 23 elastic discs. Everyone? Not quite. Noémie Kolly has only 22 left and is happy about it. “When the doctor said surgery was the only promising solution, it was a shock. I was sad, but agreed and they removed an intervertebral disc, »says the 24-year-old from Freiburg. You knew it was the right solution. “And ultimately the operation was a salvation. I only have three small scars on my back, I’m doing very well.”

For years Kolly struggled with back problems. She never got a complete handle on it. Despite this, the B-squad rider kept convincing, making it into the top 15 of a World Cup race three times in the last two years. She also made it to the Beijing Olympics and was Swiss Combined Champion last March. But five weeks ago Kolly had a bad fall during downhill training in Zermatt. “The surface was restless, I was late at one gate and crashed into the next with full force.”
