The 23-year-old, who claimed two gold medals and one silver in Vancouver back in February, missed the opening round in Ostersund due to a bronchial infection.

But Neuner, who last season added a second World Cup title to her seven World Championships victories, has been given the green light by doctors to return in Austria.

She returned to training last week and will line up in Friday's spring which is followed by a relay and a pursuit over the weekend.
