Bad Day For Kostelićs (Kostelics)

Earlier today at Yongpyong, South Korea, Ivica Kostelić (Ivica Kostelic) had to abandon the first run of giant slalom event after missing one of the gates.

Later in the same day in Innsbruck his girlfriend Caroline Lalive was seriously injured while finishing her downhill race. Lalive managed to pass through finishing line only to have one of her skis loose and crash into fence. At first few people believed that she was seriously hurt. Austrian skier Michaela Dorfmeister was first to run towards her, check her up and immediately call paramedics. Judging by the expression on Dorfmeister's face, Lalive's injuries were bad.

In unrelated incident yesterday, Silvia Nef, one of the prettiest alpine skiers of today, practically finished her season after tearing the ligament during the practice run.

Ivica's sister Janica Kostelić (Janica Kostelic) didn't seem particularly hit by those misfortunes (which had been quite common in her career) and finished Innsbruck event at 11th place.
