In June of this year, Jossi Wells injured his patella tendon while skiing, the same knee that he injured a few months earlier at X Games Norway. After his injury in June, he flew back to New Zealand and underwent surgery immediately. Wells has had a number of injuries throughout his career, however, they never seem to hold him back for too long.

Physical therapy and training soon came after his surgery. Since this summer Jossi has been putting in countless hours at the gym and endless miles on the road bike in hopes of being able to ski at the Olympics this season in Pyeongchang. As of November, Jossi has officially been selected for the New Zealand Olympic Team. Earlier today, Jossi returned to the snow for the first time in half a year with the Olympics just a few short months away. All we can hope for a continued speedy recovery and more zero spins in Pyeongchang.
