Nina Hoffmann has revealed she chose not to race in Leogang due to some mental struggles she experienced after displaying symptoms of concussion prior to her race run.
Nina took a heavy spill on the morning of the race and was showing light symptoms of concussion but was cleared for finals after a visit to a physio. She went to warm up on the track but after realising she wasn't ready to race mentally, she decided to pull out 30 minutes before the race start.
Here's the full story in Nina's own words:
We commend Nina on taking the wise decision not to risk her health and we wish her a quick recovery from the crash. We have reached out to Nina for further comment and will update this story with her progress.
