    Any dreams Russia had of dominating its home Winter Olympic Games in Sochi next year have been dealt a harsh reality check by the mediocre performances of the country's athletes this season.

    That is too bad. He is one of the more colourful speed skaters and help put the sport on the map.

    That medal table makes it seem less of a pending doom for Russia that provoked the kinds of articles I posted before. People are very doom and gloom about Russia medal chances in sochi because of lack of gold medals.

    Ski jumping: Sarah Hendrickson undergoes surgery on ACL, MCL: http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/sports/...mping.html.csp
    World Champion ski jumper Sarah Hendrickson underwent surgery on her right knee Thursday following an injury sustained in Obersdorf, Germany on Aug. 21.

    The surgery, which was performed by U.S. Ski Team physician Dr. Andrew Cooper, focused on ACL reconstruction and MCL and meniscus repair in Hendrickson’s right knee following her fall on a training jump.

    U.S. Ski Team Medical Director Kyle Wilkens said the surgery was successful and a full recovery is anticipated.

    "While it’s too early to identify a specific recovery window, the medical team will work with Sarah to ensure the best care in rehabilitation," Wilkens said in a release.

    Whitney Childers, media director for Women’s Ski Jumping USA, said the 19-year-old Hendrickson is expected to start a "pretty intensive rehab regiment" starting next week at the Center of Excellence in her hometown of Park City.

    "She’s already fighting her way to get back," Childers said. "She’s a fighter and she’s determined and able."

    Hendrickson, the 2012 World Cup ski champion and 2013 World Champion, was considered one of the heavy favorites heading into the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, in February.

    The Games in Sochi will be the first ever Games to showcase women’s ski jumping as part of the Winter Olympiad.
    "Randy [Starkman (1960-April 16, 2012)] lived by the same motto as the rest of us. The Olympics isn’t every four years, it’s every single day. He just got it." --Canadian Olympic kayaker Adam van Koeverden
