Thomas Aasen Markeng who fell in Klingenthal last season has been training for a while now but he admits that it’s not an easy journey until a comeback is possible in the World Cup.
“Despite these difficult times we live in now rehabilitation goes well. I feel like I am doing a great job together with my physical therapist. However, being patient and attentive to what my knee tells me is not easy. I miss jumping too, it was a long winter for me when I couldn’t do more than sit at home and watch my team competing on TV.”
Thomas Aasen Markeng fell during the World Cup in Klingenthal last season, rupturing the ACL in his left knee and underwent surgery right before Christmas.
“5 months after the operation there are no more restrictions concerning training, but I am still careful with jumping exercises. Other than that I am trying to have normal training sessions. I am still not exactly sure about the date of my comeback but I am planning to be ready for the World Cup start”
“The upcoming winter will be an interesting one with the Ski Flying World Championships in Planica, World Championships in Oberstdorf, Four Hills Tournament, and Raw Air so I hope that I can be able to fight for good results.”
Thomas Aasen Markeng says that his biggest goals are the World Championships but he’d still want to compete at the Four Hills Tournament.
