Dylan Ferguson, the Amesbury native who is a member of the US freestyle ski team for the Olympics, has been hospitalized with a stomach infection that could threaten his chance to compete, according to the Lawrence Eagle-Tribune newspaper.

Ferguson, who specializes in aerials, had his appendix removed Feb. 4. The newspaper reported that he was hospitalized in Park City, Utah, for the second time in a week last Wednesday, and did not travel to Vancouver with the team for the opening ceremony.

"I'm taking it day-by-day," Ferguson told the Eagle-Tribune. "I don't want to get my hopes up or down. I'm trying not to think about the Olympics right now. I need to heal up and get better before I can even think about it."

The freestyle men's aerials competition is scheduled for Monday (qualifying) and Feb. 25 (finals).
