Tsubota was attempting to land the third of three jumps at the end of the challenging and slushy course Tuesday when she crashed into the crest of the landing zone. The 20-year-old Tsubota slid down the hill while her skis scattered.
She laid still for several minutes while being treated by a medical team before being carried off the course. A Canadian team official said Tsubota is being examined for a possible fractured jaw.
Tsubota finished sixth with a score of 71.60 during her first run at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park. Teammate Dara Howell won gold.
Shouldn't the word be 'Stretchered' not stretched? Maybe if she properly stretched she wouldn't have needed to be stretchered.
I understand she has recovered from a previous accident on a slope. I am astounded at how they can navigate down those slopes so fast. To do it with a previous injury in the back of her mind has to take courage.
Don't you just love HP's proofreading.The title on the storyboard said "stretched"not stretchered.
Maybe it was the "Gumby Medics" and HP was correct. One never knows about those things.
Unfortunately, the less than ideal conditions of the snow (slopestyle, half-pipe, etc.) are contributing to a rash of accidents due to the unfavorable state of the venues. P.S. folks- Sochi is actually a temperate/sub tropical locale, and even with mountains nearby, is a very dicey affair for snow activities. In sum, probably NOT the best selection for an Olympics. So, how did they get them?(Wink! to Putin and the Oligarchs that bought them.)
a shame that venues cant be challenging but up to standards.......
Was she too short?
Before she wrecked she was unstretched.
The Olympics has not aired yet.
I guess I;m not much better "articales & articles LOL
I wonder who the morons are that proofread these articals? "stretched " LOL
shorty's are usually short :)
I hope she is ok. I'm wondering how the gal the crashed the other day is doing... Sarka? Cracked her helmut and took a bad fall....
I saw that............ she should have gone straight to the hospital for possible concussion ..... instead she skied on down the slope............ NOT SMART.
