Injured Mark McMorris is listed in Canada Olympic team


Wednesday, 28 March 2017 :  McMorris, a bronze medallist in slopestyle at the Sochi Olympics, suffered a fractured jaw and left arm, ruptured spleen, a stable pelvic fracture, rib fractures and a collapsed left lung on Saturday and was airlifted to Vancouver General Hospital where he underwent several surgeries.

The 23-year-old, who is expected to be a gold medal contender at the Pyeongchang Winter Games in both slopestyle and the newest Olympic event Big Air, will have to recover from his injuries and meet a minimum performance criterion at an eligible event during the 2017-18 competition season.

Patrick Jarvis, Canada Snowboard’s executive director, said he expects McMorris will be ready to make a comeback to competition leading into Pyeongchang.

McMorris dominated his events last season, capturing Crystal Globes as discipline champion in both Big Air and the overall Freestyle title.
