Former kayak world champion Viktoria Schwarz sleepwalks off balcony, suffers multiple fractures

Former world champion canoeist Viktoria Schwarz will miss this month's European Championships after suffering multiple fractures sleepwalking off a balcony.

A former world champion canoeist has suffered multiple fractures sleepwalking off a balcony.

Viktoria Schwarz, the 2011 double kayak world champion, fell 28 feet (8.5 metres) and fractured her left shoulder, nose and a heel bone.

The 30-year-old told Austrian sports magazine sportnet.at: "I had a hundred guardian angels.

"I took cough drops before going to sleep. And I knew that I had gone sleepwalking a few times before. But never to this extent. I can't remember anything at all."

Schwarz, who had failed to qualify for the Rio Olympics, will now miss this month's European Championships.
