Scheiber back on skis 6 months after crash



INNSBRUCK, Austria (AP) — Austrian skier Mario Scheiber has resumed training, nearly six months after breaking his shoulder blade and nose in a spectacular crash during World Cup downhill training in Chamonix, France.

The Austrian ski federation says Scheiber completed a practice session at the Hintertuxer glacier on Tuesday without complications.

The 28-year-old Scheiber says he is “doing great … though the first day on snow is somewhat unusual of course.”

Scheiber was one of four Austrian skiers who missed February’s world championships in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, because of injuries following a crash.
