Hefti, the world’s top two-man driver, needed to have at least two training runs at the Whistler Sliding Center track in order to participate in Sunday’s race.
Hefti suffered bruises to his body and a concussion after his crash. He missed Thursday’s training and said he would not train on Friday.
It is not certain whether Hefti, who won a bronze medal in the two-man four years ago at Turin, will start in the four-man event.
Substitute driver Daniel Schmid will replace Hefti in the two-man event.
