My Fall, Sochi 2014
Video footage of my fall in practice, Feburary 13th, 2014, Sochi Winter Olympic Games
Practice didn’t really go the way I wanted it to..Really wanted to put a back 9 in my run, this was going to be my last practice run, until I fell. I knew I had to get back up to see if I could ride in qualifiers, as I could barely walk.
I was able to take one more practice run just straight airs, hurting every hit on the way down. I was happy I pushed through it to try to put a decent run down in qualifiers, unfortunately landing on my hip and butt in my second run in the same place.
That’s why it took me a while to get up and needed help to walk. Hope this explains my riding in qualifiers. Proud to represent Canada at my third Games. Sad that it didn’t go the way I wanted, but I’ll be okay, happy to say.
Just a contused butt, back, sprained ribs, concussion, and black eye.
Thanks for all the love, every bit helps!
