Frenchman Poisson dies in training accident

Frenchman Poisson dies in training accident

"David Poisson, 35, member of the French Alpine Ski Team, World Championship medallist in 2013, died accidentally following a fall during training at the Canadian Nakiska station", a statement from the FFS said.

The French skiing federation says downhiller David Poisson has died following a training crash in Canada.

The federation did not elaborate.

Poisson, a bulky racer with a broad smile nicknamed "Caillou" ("small stone"), was a popular figure on the World Cup circuit.

Last year, Poisson won a World Cup downhill race in Kitzbuhel in Austria.

The resort is now only open to the public on weekends and is being used during the week as a training area for world-class alpine skiers in preparation for the looming World Cup season, which opens later this week.

France's David Poisson reacts after he crashed.

A specialist in speed events, he finished seventh in the downhill event at the 2010 Olympics.

The International Ski Federation expressed its condolences to Poisson's family and friends in a statement, praising "a respected and accomplished athlete on the World Cup tour ever since his debut in 2004". "Eliminating risk entirely in downhill is impossible".
