Share

U.S. Olympian Emily Sweeney was involved in a frightening crash Tuesday on the luge track in Pyeongchang, spinning out of control during the women's singles final.

The American lost control midway through her run and proceeded to bounce off the walls in terrifying fashion.

Associated Press reported that Sweeney, who was competing in her first Winter Olympics, was quickly attended to by medical personal.

She was able to get up and walk off without help and said she was OK.

"USA's Emily Sweeney crashes in luge, heading to hospital", CNN's Will Ripley tweeted.

After a few minutes, she was seen sitting under her own power, and was soon walking without assistance, albeit gingerly. She actually said she was okay at that point, and it was confirmed that she had no broken bones or anything of that nature, though she was then taken to the hospital for further evaluation.

"I'm okay", she told reporters.

"It's pretty brutal, but I wanted to get the last word". It's a bummer, for sure, and I know that I'm better than that.

Sweeney is just 24 years old, though, so we can hopefully count on her returning to competition for the 2022 Winter Olympics.

Sweeney's crash on her final run certainly looked bad. Her dad was also spotted with a celebratory beer after his daughter's triumph, which is, as the saying goes, the ultimate "dad move".

Germany's Natalie Geisenberger took home the gold medal once the competition resume, while American Erin Hamlin finished sixth.
