Norway's double Olympic silver medallist Ragnhild Mowinckel has returned to snow after two anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructions.

Mowinckel sustained a torn ACL during a downhill training session for the International Ski Federation (FIS) World Cup Finals in Soldeu in 2019.

The 27-year-old from Molde suffered the same injury during her comeback preparations last autumn.

Mowinckel confirmed that she has now returned to snow.

"After 17 months of rehab and two ACL reconstructions, I’m finally back on snow," Mowinckel said, according to the FIS.

"Since my crash in March 2019 I’ve only had one goal, to get back to the World Cup and race again."
