Osborne-Paradis breaks fibula in Chamonix crash

Canadian skier Manuel Osborne-Paradis broke his left fibula on Saturday after crashing during a World Cup downhill in the French Alps.
Osborne-Paradis lost his balance after one of his skis got caught on the Verte Course and he flew into the safety net.
The 26-year-old Osborne-Paradis was attached to a sled then airlifted by helicopter from the slope.
Race organizers said in a statement that Osborne-Paradis has been transferred to a Geneva hospital for further tests.
The World Cup has been marred by serious crashes this month. Mario Scheiber broke his right shoulder blade and fractured his sinuses during training this week, while Hans Grugger of Austria needed emergency brain surgery after crashing in Kitzbuehel last week and is still hospitalized.
