Incredible. From the nbc commentary, it sounds like she had gone for xrays before the race.

You can watch the finish on nbc's coverage here:

This page has some raw feeds of that race, including the crash segment.

I watched the race and they kept going back to the crash replay. She went off a corner into a drainage ditch and she sure didn't look like she could do much after climbing out. Apparently, there was a 'clause' in the rules that allowed here to start last and when she was poling, you'd nver know she was busted up. Good pain meds and amazing guts.

Did ya catch the men's nordic combined today?

I have it recorded and am getting ready to watch it.  I've waited 40 years for this day.
