New Zealand's Collins to miss slopestyle with shoulder injury

PYEONGCHANG, Feb. 9 (Xinhua) -- New Zealand's Tiarn Collins, one of his country's medal hopefuls at the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games, will miss the men's snowboard slopestyle event after suffering a shoulder injury.

A New Zealand Olympic Committee spokesman said on Friday that 18-year-old, who fell during a training session the previous weekend, was being withdrawn from the men's slopestyle qualifying on Saturday after failing to respond to treatment.
