The ski jumping world seems to be able to breathe a sigh of relief.
This is how the waking up process was initiated for the Norwegian ski jumper Tande.
His coach does not expect the Norwegian to suffer permanent damage.
After his serious fall while ski flying in Planica, ski jumper Daniel André Tande is slowly being brought out of his artificial coma. The wake-up process started on Saturday, but it is a time-consuming process, said the Norwegian Ski Association on Sunday morning. The 27-year-old will continue to be treated at the University Hospital in Ljubljana, and Norway’s sports director Clas Brede Braathen will be with him while he wakes up.
“The situation with Daniel is stable,” explained the team doctor of the Norwegian ski jumper, Guri Ranum Ekås. Follow-up examinations were made to ensure the best possible recovery process from the coma. “There is no drama associated with the process,” the doctor from the ski association was quoted as saying.
“I know how such falls happen”
Tande hit the slope violently in the trial run during ski flying in Planica on Thursday. So far, he has been diagnosed with a broken collarbone and a slight puncture of the lungs. He was placed in an artificial coma in the hospital in the Slovenian capital. Norway’s national coach Alexander Stöckl had told various media that it is currently assumed that he will not suffer any long-term damage.
The ski jumping world was shocked from the horror pictures. Germany’s top athlete Karl Geiger, whose third place was a minor matter, said, for example: “This is tragic. It’s a bad story. ” And the Swiss Gregor Deschwanden, who was also on site in Planica, said to 20 Minuten: “I didn’t see the fall live. I ran out of the stadium just as he was jumping, ”says the 30-year-old. He deliberately did not watch any videos of the fall, only saw a few pictures, he reveals.
“That’s enough for me too. I know how such falls work. Ski flying is such a joy, it’s so fun, ”says Deschwanden. And: “And then such a fall happens that brings you back to reality. It shows that it doesn’t take much for the best ski jumpers in the world to fall. It’s just a dangerous sport. ”
