World Champion Skier Marion Rolland Ruptures Knee Ligament

PARIS (AP) — World downhill champion Marion Rolland will have surgery after rupturing a knee ligament in a training crash.

She sustained the injury last Saturday in Chile and was flown to France to assess the damage. The French Ski Federation said Friday that Rolland ruptured her anterior cruciate ligament and sprained an interior knee ligament.
