German teen dies in crash

A GERMAN teenager died in a Calgary hospital on Wednesday, one day after being seriously injured during a downhill training run in Lake Louise, Canada. The death of 17-year-old ski racer Max Burkhart was confirmed by Alpine Canada which is the national governing body of Canadian skiing and the group that sanctioned the North American Cup (Nor-Am) race. Burkhart is the second ski racer to die in the Canadian Rockies this winter, after French World Cup skier David Poisson lost his life during a training crash at nearby Nakiska ski resort three weeks ago. Burkhart, a member of the Skiclub Partenkirchen in Germany, lost control during his afternoon training run and slammed into the safety netting.
