Your thoughts following skier Sarah Burke's death?
Thu, January 19, 2012

QMI Agency

Canadian freestyle skiing trailblazer Sarah Burke died Thursday in a Salt Lake City hospital.

Burke, 29, was critically injured Jan. 10 after crashing during a training run at a personal sponsor event in Park City, Utah. She was put into an induced coma after being airlifted to Salt Lake City but never regained consciousness.

Burke, a four-time Winter X Games gold medalist and pioneer in freestyle superpipe skiing, was considered one of the favourites for the 2014 Sochi Olympics, where the event would make it debut. She was a driving force behind the inclusion of freestyle skiing in the Olympics.

Send us your thoughts and condolences.

Canada, and the world, will be a little darker now that we have lost such a bright light. May your light be as bright in heaven. God bless.

Such a tragic loss of life and talent. My deepest condolences to her family and friends. Canada has truly lost a bright star.

Rest in Peace Sarah, you were legendary. Your loss is felt throughout our country. What a sad loss for your family, friends, team mates and for our country. I know you would have done well in Sochi in 2014 and I hope your team mates will honor your legacy. You were a gifted athlete who deserved so much more.

My condolences to Sarah Burke's family and friends for their tragic loss. Its little comfort to them that she died doing something that she loved to do. Rest in Peace.

What a terrible shame to lose your life so young. I hate when people say "she died doing what she loved" - because I am sure she would have liked to live to do what she loved. My condolences to her husbnad and family. R.I.P.Sarah

very sorry to hear this life ended so young but she was blessed in a way to die doing something she loved- few people of the billions on this planet meet such a passing

While it is obviously tragic that we have lost such an amazing talented young woman, it is also equally amazing that she was thoughtful enough to be an organ/tissue donor, and that others will live on because of her generosity.
