Read about this earlier. Bloody shocking. Hopefully everything turns out. She had been such a solid winner and would have likely done very well again at Winter X

Any updates on her condition? What I read earlier didn't sound good. :(

That does not sound good. I hope she can make it and ski again!

That's horrible. :( Just surviving is the important thing now, prayers to her and her family.

This is so very sad, I hope she is okay.

Thank you for linking the story though- because of it I found out that Kevin Pearce has snowboarded again (but obviously not competitively). After his injury I didn't expect that to be possible. Hopefully Sarah Burke will have the same, excellent level of recovery.

CBC Sports ~ Freestyler Burke went into cardiac arrest after accident (http://www.cbc.ca/sports/skiing/story/2012/01/16/sp-skiing-burke-condition.html)

The family was set to hold a news conference Monday, but decided to cancel it after meeting with Burke's physicians.

“So it seems pretty clear that’s not good news,” said Boag. “It’s a stretch to say that it is bad news. We talked with the public relations people here about the state of mind of the family and there were a couple of things they were concerned about. First of all, based on the information they got last night, which they have not shared with us, they were not sure that there was a point to having a news conference. They’re not sure they’d be able to answer the questions being asked.

“Obviously there’s a possibility that the news they did receive was upsetting to them and they chose to cancel the news conference — for that reason as well — but we don’t know that for certain.”

This does not sound good at all. :(

This is so terrible. She is so young and full of life with a promising future. I will say a prayer for her.

She must have a massive head injury. :( That is so sad.

She must have a massive head injury. :( That is so sad.

apparently the tests that were done the outcome wasn't very good - :( But not confirmed - just FB rumours from other athletes :confused:

Let's hope for the best though
