Simmen out of action

It's bed and no board for Simmen right now

(Keystone Archive)

Former Olympic snowboarding champion Gian Simmen will be taking things easy for at least two months after fracturing his shoulder during a photo-shoot.

The Swiss star, who struck gold in the halfpipe at the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics, sustained the injury last Sunday in the Colorado resort of Breckenridge.

Following a successful operation in Bern on Friday, the 25-year-old boarder has been told he will have to rest for between two to three months.
