Hans Grugger Crash: Austrian Skier Hospitalized (VIDEO)

KITZBUEHEL, Austria -- Austrian skier Hans Grugger was hospitalized with a brain contusion and a chest injury after crashing Thursday during a training run for Saturday's World Cup downhill on the demanding Streif course।

The Austrian ski federation said Thursday that Grugger was having neurosurgery but declined to reveal more detail until after the operation.

According to Didier Cuche, who won the downhill race in Kitzbuehel last year, Grugger missed out on the racing line and was not able to adjust.

"The problem is that you have several bumps in the first two turns," said the Swiss skier, who posted the fastest time when training resumed after a 30-minute delay. "If you can't keep your direction there, it can cause you real troubles."

The 29-year-old Grugger's career has been marred by knee injuries, which kept him sidelined several times in the last couple of seasons. He has four career World Cup victories
