PORTLAND, Maine - Two-time Olympic snowboardcross champion Seth Wescott hopes to recover from a knee injury in time for the Sochi Games.

Westcott, from Maine, is recovering in Utah after surgery April 23 to reconstruct the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. He was injured in Alaska.

He told the Portland Press Herald (http://bit.ly/14YyBU5) he hopes to resume snowboarding in November and to be ready for the Olympics in Russia in February.

Last year, he tore a pectoral muscle, but came back to win a World Cup race at Telluride. In 2001, he had reconstructive surgery on his right knee.
