How sad. It kind of sucks the joy out of watching for me when I have to face the reality of what the athletes are risking.

It will be exceptionally bittersweet when the sport she helped get into the Olympics debuts in 2014 without her.

I hate being the harbinger of bad news, but nobody had posted it and given the accident was reported I figured I should.

Sounds weird to say but I'm glad you did, Drood, as I hadn't been following the story too closely. Awful news.
