The Albertville File

February 14, 1992

* ON THE MEND: U.S. skier Kristin Krone, who broke a knuckle on her left hand in a dramatic accident earlier this week, will miss tomorrow's downhill.

Krone, from Truckee, Calif., tried to work out today but said she was unable to properly hold a ski pole.

"It didn't work out this morning with the hand," said Krone, who also sprained both knees in the high-speed fall that ended in a safety fence. "There were other body parts that didn't work well. It just wasn't worth it."

Krone said she felt fine immediately after the Wednesday accident, but has felt progressively worse the past three days.

* WHAT'S UP, DOC?: Top Russian biathlete Sergei Tarasov is in intensive care with a mysterious infection, the medical chief at the Winter Olympics said today.

Dr. Patrick Schamasch said Tarasov was taken to the hospital in Albertville last Friday and moved the next day to an intensive care unit at Chambery city hospital, where his condition had since improved.

Doctors at Chambery said Tarasov's life was now out of danger.

"Tests show that he was suffering from a grave general infectious syndrome," Schamasch told Reuters. "As for what caused it, I can't tell you because we don't know."
