Olympic ski jumping champ Thomas Morgenstern of Austria was hospitalised yesterday after suffering a serious crash in training at Tauplitz.
The spectacular fall, his second in a month, saw Morgenstern lose balance and land heavily on his back and head before sliding lifelessly down the slope. The 27-year-old is one of Austria’s leading gold medal hopes for the upcoming Sochi Winter Olympics.
