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.
