Komissarova wrote on Instagram, “I don’t feel my body below my navel. But I am strong and I know that I’ll be able to stand on my legs again some day.”
The 23-year-old Komissarova remains in a Munich rehabilitation center after breaking her spine at the Sochi Winter Games. She will remain there for at least three months, a spokesman for the Russian freestyle ski federation told the Interfax news agency.
Komissarova crashed during a training run on Feb. 15, fracturing the 12th dorsal vertebrae in her lower-middle back. She underwent emergency surgery lasting 6½ hours at Krasnaya Polyana, Russia, a day before being airlifted to Germany for further treatment.
