Fujimori released from hospital


Snowboard cross racer Yuka Fujimori was released from a hospital on Saturday, a day after banging her head in an accident during training for the Vancouver Olympics.

The Japanese delegation said that the 23-year-old was admitted to a hospital as a precautionary measure but is set to compete in the race getting under way on Tuesday as scheduled.

On Friday, Fujimori made a crash landing when she was thrown off-balance by a gust of wind at Cypress Mountain. No abnormalities were found after she underwent a detailed examination the same day.
