VIENNA - Downhill world champion Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway will likely miss the entire ski season after tearing his Achilles tendon while playing soccer.The Norwegian ski federation said that Svindal sustained the injury in Austria on Saturday — eight days before the mens World Cup season starts with a giant slalom on the Rettenbach glacier in Soelden, Austria.The season also includes the world championships in Vail and Beaver Creek in February, where Svindal was set to defend his downhill title.I was out for a little run with the rest of the team, Svindal wrote on his Facebook page on Sunday. We ended the session playing around with a ball. Just holding it up in the air between us. Suddenly I felt something snap in my leg and I knew right away that something was wrong. Achilles.Svindal said he was brought to a hospital in Innsbruck and underwent surgery shortly after.A real injury and extremely bad timing just as the season is about to start, the Norwegian said. Nobody can say 100 per cent sure how long the recovery will take, but Im ready for the weeks that are coming.Svindal added he planned to stay in Austria for a while before travelling to Oslo.He is probably out of the whole season, spokesman Claes-Tommy Herland of the Norwegian ski federation told The Associated Press in a phone call.Svindal clinched the overall title in 2006 and 2009, and last season became the closest challenger of Marcel Hirscher on the Austrians way to a third straight overall title. The Norwegian won the crystal globes for leading the seasons downhill and super-G rankings, raising his number of World Cup discipline titles to nine.Its a giant loss for next season, Hirscher told the Austria Press Agency, adding he had texted Svindal his best wishes. Aksel is a true hero of our sports. He leaves behind a huge gap and his spirit will be missed.Svindal isnt unfamiliar to staging a comeback from injury after missing almost the entire 2007-08 season following a serious crash in training on the Birds of Prey downhill course in Beaver Creek. Svindal landed in the safety nettings and broke bones in his face and suffered a laceration to his groin and abdominal area.Svindal returned and won his second overall title the next season, including gold in the super-combined at the 2009 world championship in Val dIsere.The 31-year-old Norwegian has won 11 medals at major championships, including three at the Vancouver Olympics, where he won gold in super-G, silver in downhill and bronze in GS.

"Im proud of him," Jones said in an interview from Sacramento, site of the UFCs weekend televised card. "I think hes listening to his body and hes doing what makes him happy and thats what life is about ultimately.VANCOUVER - B.C. Lions defensive back Dante Marsh has seen the weather forecasts ahead of Sundays CFL West Division semifinal. It doesnt faze him one bit. "If weve got to play at two in the morning on the Moon, Jupiter, Neptune ... then thats where weve got to play," the 10-year veteran said this week. "Im not going to let peripheral things sidetrack me mentally to take me away from the job at hand." While that job wont be taking them out of this world, the Lions (11-7) travel to chilly Regina to meet the Saskatchewan Roughriders (11-7) on Sunday for a playoff game that could see temperatures drop as low as -15 C. Despite the frigid conditions in this years Grey Cup host city, neither team expects the cold to be much of a factor in the contest to decide the Calgary Stampeders opponent in the West final. "Once youre out on the field and running around, a lot of times you dont feel it. Thats not to downplay it," said Lions quarterback Travis Lulay. "(But) a lot of times you can mentally block out the weather. "I dont foresee cold being too big of an issue." Roughriders head coach Corey Chamblin said the conditions could give his team a slight edge, but noted it could also have the opposite effect. "If we start to prepare in our minds that Oh its going to be huge. They cant do this, they cant do that, thats when it becomes a disadvantage," said Chamblin. "Theyve played in this league long enough to understand that its going to be cold this time of year. "Were not looking for advantages, were just looking to do what we need to do, execute and win a game." Whats more likely to be the difference on Sunday is both teams ability to run the football. Saskatchewan running back Kory Sheets finished No. 2 in the league in total yards with 1,598 to go along with 12 touchdowns despite missing two games because of injury. He suited up for two of the Roughriders three games with the Lions — Saskatchewans only victories against B.C. — compiling 228 yards and three touchdowns. "I think hes a very special running back," said Lions defensive end Keron Williams. "For somebody that size to be that nifty ... his centre of gravity is not that low and he can bounce it and go the distance — thats a special player. "Hes definitely circled in our books." Lions head coach Mike Benevides, himself a big proponent of the passing game, said stopping Sheets will be crucial for the No.dddddddddddd 1-ranked B.C. defence that was second against the run. "Thats their DNA. Its been that way since Day 1. When they get up ... they really manage the clock well that way by running the football," said Benevides. "The run and the line of scrimmage — its said all the time, the game is won and lost — and thats not going to change on Sunday." Meanwhile, B.C.s ground attack took a nose dive mid-season, failing to register a 100-yard rusher for 11 straight games. But the addition of former NFLer Stefan Logan and the resurgence of Andrew Harris has the Lions back on track after back-to-back 200-yard rushing games to close out the regular season. Harris, who finished third in the CFL this season with 998 yards on the ground, said he expects to find holes against a Saskatchewan defence that finished third overall and third against the rush. "I think we can run the ball against them, I think we can pass against them," said Harris. "Especially with some healthy quarterbacks coming back now, it will be a different game for us." The question of who will play quarterback for the Lions was asked all week, with Benevides refusing to name his starter until he got a better sense of Lulays health. Coming of an injury to his throwing shoulder, Lulay saw his first action in six weeks with a cameo appearance in the regular-season finale against Calgary. The other option is veteran backup Buck Pierce, who rallied the team off the bench against the Edmonton Eskimos in the second last game of the season before starting last week. Benevides said he will decide on his starter by Saturday but added that Lulay has looked good this week. "Hes made those throws that he needs to make," said Benevides. "I just want to see how he feels." Also on the injury front, Roughriders quarterback Darian Durant will be without slotback Chris Getzlaf (knee), but still has plenty of weapons, including fellow 1,000-yard receivers Weston Dressler and Taj Smith. Despite having homefield advantage and the benefit of practising in the elements on a daily basis, Durant said the Roughriders will need a full 60-minute effort to move on against Calgary. "We know that theyre going to come in hungry," said Durant. "If we overlook them at all then we will be going home."
