Skiing is really hot these days, and I often see various skiers in the news or on social media. I am very curious about how skiers are selected and what are the common injuries of skiers

Skiers are usually selected through competition performance and professional evaluation. Competition performance is defined as performance in an official competition, such as a World Cup skiing competition or the Olympics. In competition, athletes are evaluated for technique, speed, style and safety.
Common injuries to skiers include broken bones, knee injuries, shoulder injuries, arm injuries and head injuries. These injuries are usually caused by falls or high speed skiing. To prevent these injuries, skiers should wear ski equipment as well as proper protective equipment and practice proper training and technique.
