Canada’s Aleksandra Wozniak will be sidelined for the rest of the year with a joint sprain in her right shoulder.
Wozniak was diagnosed with an acromioclavicular joint sprain and will require a minimum of six weeks to recover, ending her 2012 season.
“I am keeping a positive attitude in spite of this new injury I suffered recently at the tournament in Quebec City,” she said in a statement. “I was in a good position heading into the last events of the season because I didn’t have a lot of points to defend. It’s unfortunate as I was hoping to improve my ranking (No. 43), but I will come back stronger.”
She will begin physiotherapy once the pain and inflammation go down.
