Munich (dpa) - Freestyle skier Lisa Zimmermann has become the fourth German athlete to miss out on a ticket to the upcoming Winter Olympics due to injury.

The 21-year-old had been struggling with a cruciate ligament tear on her right knee since February but had refused to undertake an operation.

She has now confirmed via her management that she will not take part in upcoming World Cup freestyle events in North America, meaning she is unable to qualify for next month‘s Olympics, the German Ski Association (DSV) confirmed on Thursday.

DSV‘s Wolfgang Maier said that his association had already expected that Zimmermann, a gold medal winner in the women‘s Big Air competition at the 2017 X Games, would not be ready to compete in Pyeongchang.

The freestyle skier is the fourth name to be scratched from Germany‘s starting list in South Korea, after ski jumper Severin Freund and alpine skiers Felix Neureuther and Stefan Luitz, all succumbed to injuries.
