More from Lake Louise. Today it was colder (-21 celsius @ 0700 hrs) but warmed up nicely with brilliant sunshine.
During today's training run, an Italian skier had a fall and the Medical response skills practiced yesterday were put into action.
Prompt response by Medical staff ensured that the injured racer was treated on-site and transported to the bottom of the hill in a matter of twenty minutes.
Like all types of "first response" it is preferable that it not become necessary; however, I can say that the international field of racers gathered for Lake Louise Winterstart World Cup are fortunate to have a truly world-class medical team to respond as required.
