American luger Emily Sweeney in horror crash at Winter Olympics

American luger Emily Sweeney in horror crash at Winter Olympics

Though this is Sweeney's first Olympic appearance, she is no stranger to the competition.

Sweeney hit the turn at over 60 miles per hour, trying to use her feet to slow down her descent, but to no avail.

She suffered no broken bones during the crash, and she was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure.

Team USA luger Emily Sweeney was knocked out of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games following a terrifying crash in the final heat.

Watch Sweeney's crash in the videos below, but please note that some viewers may find the footage distressing. A stretcher was brought out, but after several tense minutes Sweeney was able to get to her feet. Upon exiting the course, she received a standing ovation from the other lugers and was even able to say, "I'm fine", which, if you weren't crying already, certainly sealed the deal.

"It's pretty brutal, but I wanted to get the last word".

Geisenberger won gold by maintaining the lead she took into the day.

Curve 9 has been a problem for sliders throughout the early portion of the Olympics, causing many to skid, lose control and lose some time.

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.

Erin Hamlin, who carried the United States flag during the Opening Ceremony andn who won bronze in Sochi, finished sixth in her final Olympics. According to the Associated Press, track workers tweaked the curve in the past year to make it a little more manageable.
