Greenwich skier aims for the Olympics

Greenwich Time reports on the torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury of 22-year old Kay Holscher, a member of the Chilean National Ski Team. Holscher suffered his first ACL injury during his first year in college in Chile in 2017, and treated it with rehab. In February of this year, he tore his ACL again at the North American Cup at the National Winter Activity Center in New Jersey, during a test run in the slalom and giant slalom events. Holscher underwent ACL repair surgery performed by HSS sports medicine surgeon and team physician for the U.S. National Ski Team John D. MacGillivray, MD.

On Holscher’s recovery, Dr. MacGillivray noted, “He is a phenomenal athlete, who did extremely well with his rehab.” Dr. MacGillivray advised Holscher for five months while he rehabbed at home. Holscher aspires to represent Chile at the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing.
