Mikhail Maksimochkin fractured ribs in a dramatic training crash on the large hill at the Sochi Olympics and spent Wednesday night in hospital. Still, the Russian ski jumper hasnt ruled himself out of the Olympics just yet. Alexander Uvarov, president of the national ski jumping federation, said he visited Maksimochkin in hospital on Thursday morning to discuss options for rehabilitation. "Usually it takes a week to take off pain and from two to three weeks to heal the injury," Uvarov told The Associated Press. "He has his ribs fractures. So far, there is no indication that he might continue to compete. "But you know, athletes sometimes will insist to go on despite their injuries. Its up to him, his coach and doctors to make the final decision." Normal hill gold medal winner Kamil Stoch of Poland crashed during the same session Wednesday, leaving the hill with his left arm in a sling. He was not seriously injured and was expected to take part in the second set of training rounds on Thursday night. The gold medal final is Saturday. Despite the accidents, an FIS official said through organizers that the facilities were safe, and they planned no changes to the set-up for Thursday evenings training. Paramedics immobilized Maksimochkin with a neck and back brace and strapped him to a stretcher before rushing him to the hospital following the accident on Wednesday. He attempted to stand up after falling, but collapsed on the icy landing area, and officials rushed to his aid. Among those training on the first night was Thomas Morgenstern of Austria. The three-time Olympic champion was hospitalized with skull and lung injuries after a training crash on Jan. 10, four weeks after sustaining facial cuts, bruises and a broken finger following a bad landing during a World Cup event. The large hill ski jump at Sochi has a vertical drop of 140 meters from the starting position to the landing area, roughly equivalent to a 40-story fall in about nine seconds. Competitors reach speeds of around 90 kilometres per hour (55 mph) and are about six meters (20 feet) off the ground during most of their descent. By the time they land, they are travelling at about 70 kph (42 mph). Morgenstern, asked if he had concerns on the large hill at any competition, didnt mince his words. "I would be lying if I said no," he said after his accident in January. "There is a certain fear, thats for sure. Not on the normal hill, but its different on the large hill."

He described his reunion with Chelsea, for which he scored 211 goals, as special and weird.Chelsea missed a great opportunity to open up an eight-point cushion on City, relinquishing a lead given to the visitors by substitute Andre Schuerrle in the 71st after his far-post tap-in from Eden Hazards cross.City was down to 10 men by that stage after right back Pablo Zabaleta was given a second yellow card in the 66th for a lunge at Diego Costa, but still finished the stronger and was rewarded by the late intervention from substitute Lampard.City manager Manuel Pellegrini described Chelsea as a small club after the match for what he perceived to be its defensive tactics. He compared them to those adopted by Stoke, which beat City 1-0 in its last home game.Today was (our) best game of the season, with the character tto play against a big team with very good players that were just defending, Pellegrini said.ddddddddddddDropping points for the first time this season, Chelsea still ended the weekend with a three-point lead over Southampton and its hardest match out of the way.Chelsea did the double over City last season, with its win at Etihad Stadium in February widely hailed as a tactical clinic from Jose Mourinho. And the Portuguese coach was happy to ditch the flamboyance that had helped his team claim four straight wins.It made for a tense, edgy and physical battle that was dominated by defences, with Eliaquim Mangala enjoying a strong starting debut for City after his big-money summer move from Porto.Neither goalkeeper was seriously tested until Thibaut Courtois saved from City striker Sergio Aguero early in the second half, with Edin Dzeko denied on the rebound by a lunging tackle from Ramires.The game turned on Zabaletas sending-off a€” the Argentina defender apologized on Twitter afterward a€” and Diego Costa led a counterattack that ended with Hazard crossing from the right for Schuerrle to tap in unmarked.Cheered throughout by Chelseas fans, Lampard had the last say by running onto a knockdown from the indefatiguable James Milner and slotting a shot under old friend John Terry and in at the near post.I feel that when a player leaves another club and plays for a direct opponent, he is not going there for a holiday, he is going there to try and beat his club - the one everyone considers the club of his heart, but not anymore, Mourinho said.While at City, he wants to beat Chelsea. That is the nature of football. ' ' '
