Snowboard champion Ledecka returning to the slopes after collarbone injury

Three-time Olympic champion Ester Ledecká will compete in the World Cup parallel snowboarding races in Rogla and  Berchtesgaden next week, the Czech Ski and Snowboarding Association  announced on its website. Ledecka will return to the slopes after prolonged treatment of a broken collarbone which necessitated two surgeries. The 27-year-old Czech started training in early February, but missed the World Championship races in Bakuriani.
