Danny Davis injured, out of Olympics

Snowboarding Olympic hopeful Danny Davis will have back surgery later today in Utah, putting him out of competitive action the rest of 2010.

Fabforum The surgery will be to repair a L3 spine fracture, which occurred early Sunday morning when Davis was injured in a non-snowboarding accident. A report in the Park Record quoted a detective from the Summit (Utah) County Sheriff's office saying Davis was injured in an ATV accident with a friend, having apparently hit a closed gate.

"Doctors remain positive Danny will make a full recovery," said a statement on Davis' Facebook page.
