There will likely be no 2022 Olympic Games for U.S. Ski Team member Alice Merryweather.
The Hingham native and Dartmouth College student suffered a broken tibia and fibula during downhill training in Saas Fee, Switzerland on Wednesday, effectively putting an end to her season.
According to the U.S. Ski Team, the 25-year-old Merryweather was cruising at around 80 miles per hour during her run when she crashed toward the bottom of the course in the Swiss Alps. Merryweather was airlifted to a nearby hospital, where she underwent surgery.
Photos that Merryweather posted to her social media accounts came with a warning due to their graphic nature. In the images, Merryweather’s face was swollen and badly-scraped.
