Remembering Sarah Burke
Canada has lost one of it’s finest athletes in freestyle skier Sarah Burke. She died following a training accident at the age of 29. Sarah had pioneered the superpipe event, winning a world championship and 4 gold medals at the X-Games. Sarah has also been called the finest female skier in the world. She successfully lobbied the IOC to have her event added to the Olympics and was the favourite to win gold in 2014. We love our athletes (if you watched any of the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver, you will know what I mean) and a tragedy like this is very sad and is felt very deeply.
