Team USA luger Emily Sweeney was knocked out of the 2018 Winter Olympics after a terrifying crash during the final heat of the women's singles competition at the Pyeongchang Winter Games.
Sweeney was able to get up and smile to fans as she walked alongside the track, where she was greeted with cheers. As Sweeney was reaching Curve 9, which has developed a reputation among Olympic lugers for being so slippery and hard to handle, she slid upward so that her feet smashed into the right (upper) wall, which sent her careening back down into the left wall. Medical personnel rushed to her side before she finally stood up and walked roughly 10 minute after her crash, the Associated Press reports.
Just a horrifying crash by Emily Sweeney.
"I don't think Curve 9 is unsafe, but I am anxious because it's technical", Mazdzer said in a video for NBC, explaining how it can throw a luger off by tenths of a second, which can be the difference in a medal.
