Recovery, Looking Back, My Falls, Sochi 2014
Still recovering here from my concussion I was browsing the web quickly and for the first time got to see my second fall at the Games.
To clarify, I got my injuries from my first fall in practice that day, unfortunately the World broadcast doesn’t show this, and people only saw this fall on TV.
I can laugh now, because I know I’m on the road to recovery, but people at home must have been wondering why this fall took me out.
Sochi Second Run, Second Fall
I hope it’s been clarified that that was the second fall on my hip that day.
My first fall happened in practice and is below.
I think it was the adrenalin that got me back up there to do my contest runs, and the concussion that I didn’t know I had…
Those were not 2 runs that showcased my riding ability, but I just wanted to prove that I could try. I’m glad I did, and knew going into my second run that even if I made it through to the semie final I wouldn’t be able to take anymore runs. I couldn’t walk on my own or do my bindings up without help.
Sad Olympics for me, but learned a lot about myself and how dedicated and competitive I am.
Back home now, laying low waiting to get back to “normal me” again as this concussion has taken it’s toll on me.
