The German national team skier Norman Kohler suffered serious face injuries in accident on the Ramsau/Dachstein glacier this weekend. He was airlifted by ambulance helicopter to the hospital in Salzburg.
A number of national teams including the German team are currently training on the Dachstein glacier at 3000-meter altitude in Ramsau, Austria. The camp ended abruptly for the German national team skier Norman Kohler when he during a classic workout blew of the course and hit his head on an iceblock next to the track. He suffered serious face injuries and an ambulance helicopter was called upon to take him to the hospital in Salzburg.
World Cup winner Axel Teichman was the first skier that noted the accident and was helping Kohler until the helicopter arrived one hour later.
Norman Kohler changed from biathlon to cross country skiing after last season. He was sixth in the rollerski competition in Oberhof in the German fall test two weeks ago.
