Unhappy All the best Silvano!!

Some of you may have seen the terrible crash from



Silvano Beltrametti last saturday! With the fastest intermediate time of all racers he lost control and crashed through the safety net.

<br /><font size=1>First Aide: The swiss teamdoc Thierry Maître, taking care of Silvano Beltrametti<br />Photo: Sven Thomann from Blick <font size=2>

From one second to an other his promising career - he was the best newcomer Switzerland had for a long time - was over with the devasting diagnosis that he's paralysed from the 7 vertebrae downwards.

For his recovery which will take a long time I wish him, his family and friends all the energy and power they need.<br />Just hope the Swiss team will be able to overcome this shock as well and keep fighting for good results. That's what Silvano wants most!!

Goooo Silvano keep fighting!!

Sidenote - At the same evening the Swiss-Sport-Awards took place where he was nominated for the Newcomer of the year - he finished second. Of course the ambiance was pretty down becouse of that terrible accident.

Today he's been moved from the hospital in Grenoble to the swiss paralysed center in Notzwil. There they will upgrade his spine and prepare him for his live in the wheelchair.

Wish you a good recovery Silvano.

Thumbs up

Finally his homepage is up!!

To wish him good luck go to:<br /> <a href="http://www.beltra.ch/" target="_blank">http://www.beltra.ch/</A>

and klick on "Gästebuch".

Sorry when I bother you with this but his accident really touched me. And I feel soo sorry for him. Wishing him good luck is about the only thing one can do for him at the moment. Then when looking at this pic

<br /><font size=1>picture Josef Ritler/Blick<font size=2>

it's pretty clear that it needs a wonder that he'll ever been able to walk again!!

Well I pray that that wonder will happen!! Believe in your self Silvano you can do it!!

Successfull five hour operation.

Today Silvano finally had the long awaited surgery to stabilise his spine. They fixed his back with two metal stick on each side of his spine from the 3 to the 10 vertabrea, placing screws at the 3,5,8 and 10 vertabrea. The spinal marrow is damaged on a lenght of 5 cm (1,2 inch) which is the reason that he's paralised from the 7 vertabrea downwards. In about 5 days they'll start with reha.

Silvano all the force and pover you need to get over this!!

After 26 days he gave yesterday his first pressconference at the spz in Notzwil. Presenting himself for the first time in a wheelchair infront of around 60 media ppl.

He looked pretty composed about what happened to him. Saying that it's gods will that he has to go this way now. He was able to show the world that he's among the best skiers and that made him happy. He doesn't think that he might do some paralysed sports but he might change his mind later. As for right now he can't watch any downhill races as that would still hurt to much. From one second to an other on he had to change his aims. Before he was working 24 hrs for the ski sport. Now he's happy about every little progress like beeing able to eat again on his own staying an hr. longer in the wheelchair and so on. Since the accident he had quite a few ups and downs where he was glad that he had his family and friends around him. He also thanked to all the ppl. sending him cards, e-mails or signing his homepage (So far he got about 8'000 get well wishes!!)

He still has to stay in Nottwil for an other 4 or 5 month to get used to his new live.

Silvano the sparkel in your eyes are gone. But I'm sure back it'll come back one day soon!! You're able to manage this situation never give up!!
