Head injury, staples from reef accident on Julia Mancuso’s Instagram
Julia Mancuso hit her head on a reef, needing 15 staples among her hair, according to a post on the four-time U.S. Olympic Alpine skiing medalist’s Instagram account.
Mancuso, 31 and a four-time Olympian, spent time in Fiji this month after cutting her 2014-15 season short due to right hip pain and skipping the World Cup Finals in March.
She plans on competing through the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Games, which would be her fifth. No U.S. woman previously competed in five Winter Games.
