This is so very sad, our thoughts are with her family and new husband.

 

Canadian freeskiing star Sarah Burke, who had been under critical care with serious head injuries since a fall in the superpipe on Jan. 10, passed away Thursday at the University of Utah Hospital.

Burke, 29, sustained her injuries while training in the Eagle Superpipe at Park City Mountain Resort. She landed badly after attempting a spinning trick and struck her head after tumbling to the bottom of the icy U-shaped pipe.

The famous athlete, a four-time X Games champion and a gold-medal favorite for the 2014 Winter Olympics at Sochi, Russia, passed away at 9:22 a.m., in the company of family and her new husband, Rory Bushfield.
