Team USA’s Emily Sweeney emerged without serious injury following a scary crash in her final run at the Winter Olympics in the women’s singles luge on Tuesday. Afterward, she posted a message on Instagram thanking those who have sent “supportive messages.”
The 24-year-old Maine native slid into the course wall after a particularly difficult stretch along the course’s ninth turn. On Wednesday, she reassured fans in an Instagram post, reiterating that she is OK.
“It’s not always pretty,” Sweeney wrote. “Thank you all so much for the supportive messages. That was a tough one! I’m very stiff, but my x-rays came back clean. Most importantly I was able to walk away. I am truly grateful for all of the support. Thank you doesn’t even begin to cover it.”
Sweeney received medical attention immediately after the crash, but walked away on her own.
