USA Luge confirmed the athlete had not suffered any serious injuries during the crash. Crashes, however, have not come as often as they did in the 2006 and 2010 Games, both of which left athletes openly complaining about track safety.

"I've never been so relieved than when I saw her getting up and walking", said American teammate Summer Britcher, choking back tears.
