UPDATED: Cranbrook’s India Sherret crashes in Olympic debut, in stable condition at hospital

Ski cross athlete loses balance mid-race in seeding round of event in Pyeongchang

Cranbrook’s India Sherret had a devastating start to her first ever Olympic Games on Thursday, crashing in her opening seeding race at Phoenix Snowpark in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

The 21-year-old ski cross athlete took an early lead in the opening heat race, but near the middle of the course fell off balance following a jump and then proceeded to crash as she tried to straighten herself up before the next jump.

Sherret did not finish the race and had to be taken off the mountain on a sled by ski patrol. This story will be updated once information is available on the nature of Sherret’s injury and its severity.

UPDATE: According to a post on her sister’s Facebook page, Sherett is “up and moving” and her injuries were to her back and hips. The Team Canada Public Relations twitter page updated the situation, as well, saying that “[Sherett] was taken to hospital where she is being assessed. She is in stable condition.”
