Hockey star Jágr to be fit for start of Winter Olympics


The Czech ice hockey star Jaromír Jágr will be fit for the start of the Winter Olympics in Vancouver. After he was taken off after the first period of a game for his club Omsk on Friday there were reports in the Russian media that he had sustained a groin injury. However, Jágr told the newspaper Sport that he had merely felt weak because of a stomach virus, adding that he would likely be able to play for Omsk again on Sunday in what will be the club’s last game before the Olympic break.
