Olympic bronze medallist Jan Hudec out for season with knee injury

CALGARY — Jan Hudec's ski racing season is over.

The Olympic bronze medallist in super-G in 2014 needs to treat and rehabilitate his right knee.

Hudec underwent knee surgery in January and returned to the Canada's alpine ski team for this season.

But the 34-year-old Calgarian had a setback in training in November.

Hudec pushed out of the start hut at the season-opening super-G in Lake Louise, Alta., but didn't finish the race.

Hudec expects to undergo knee surgery again next month. He says he intends to return for the 2016-17 season.
