Alpine Canada's Anna Goodman on road to recovery after hip injury

Canadian Alpine Ski Team member Anna Goodman has suffered a season-ending hip injury.

Goodman, of Pointe-Claire, Que., returned to Canada after the FIS World Alpine Ski Championships held in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, at the end of February and was assessed by Alpine Canada Alpin's medical team back in Calgary this week. Doctors determined Goodman has damaged cartilage and she will require further assessment.

"She will be assessed by a hip arthroscopy surgeon early next week to determine if there is any surgical intervention required," said ACA co-medical director Dr. Stephen French.

"For the time being, her ski racing season is over and at this point we are not able to determine if she will be able to participate in the summer training schedule."

Goodman, 23, has been rehabilitating her hip in Calgary in recent weeks. She is looking forward to a fast recovery.

"I fell in Courchevel at a World Cup race and hurt my hip," said Goodman. "I was hoping it wasn't too bad so I kept going. As the season went on the pain got worse and I had trouble skiing. After the World Championships I decided to come to Calgary and have the medical team check it out.

"I just wanted to know what was wrong and it was so painful that I couldn't believe it wasn't serious."

"All season I was pretty annoyed because I had to come back from last year's knee surgery and then my hip started hurting," added Goodman. "I really want to give it another try and get as healthy as possible for next season. I want to come back next year knowing that I still have it in me and win."
