Injured B.C. skier Dixon aiming for Olympic recovery

Ten days from now, the eyes of the skiing world will be on Lake Louise for the first men's downhill race of the season — but unfortunately, North Vancouver's Robbie Dixon won't be there.

The 27-year-old downhill skier is still recovering from a horrific accident last year, when he snapped his right shin bones in a high-speed training accident.

And as the CBC's Karin Larsen tells us, Dixon's only race now is to be strong enough to compete at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics​ in Russia.
