Olympics: Injured Ito pulls out of women's moguls skiing

SOCHI, Russia, Feb. 7, Kyodo

Japanese ace Miki Ito has withdrawn from Saturday's second round of qualifying for the women's moguls at the Sochi Olympics after aggravating a right knee injury, the Japanese Olympic Committee said Friday.

"We had to make a comprehensive decision while considering her intentions," the JOC said in a statement. The 26-year-old Ito collapsed in the finish area after landing her final aerial in practice before the first qualification round on Thursday and had to be taken from the venue by ambulance.

According to Japan team coach Shigeru Kobayashi, Ito iced the injury in the athletes village but did not go to a hospital. She has decided to have her knee examined once she returns to Japan.
