Svindal, Miller back from injuries, plan to race at worlds
Yahoo News - about 2 years
Bode Miller and Aksel Lund Svindal will compete in just about anything, even who can return faster from surgery. A little over two months removed from a procedure to fix a herniated disk in his back, the 37-year-old Miller said Monday he's hoping to race in the super-G, downhill and possibly the super-combined at the world championships. Later that day, and not to be outdone, Svindal, the standout from Norway, announced he was going to test out his torn left Achilles in a downhill training session Tuesday to see if it can hold up to the rigors of racing. Although they're on the mend, no way these two veterans - with a combined 781 World Cup starts and nine Olympic medals - can be any sort of factor at worlds, right?
