She seems like a nice young lady. The world was a better place with her in it.
Unfortunately, I question the ESPN so called X sports whether winter
or summer, they encourage young people to risk their life by doing things which
clearly are not safe. It has to be profitable for ESPN, but I think it is bad
for our society. Media in general seems to be always encouraging us to go the
wrong way be it profanity, drugs, work ethic, or extreme sports. Even the name
is wrong...these things are not sports. By encouraging young people to risk
their life just to do something more crazy than the prior competitor, ESPN is
creating Russian roulette style contest. Maybe we should just go to putting
one cartridge in a revolver, then two, etc. It would make as much sense. I
never have interest in an activity where the primary goal is to avoid being
I want to ban all Extreme Sports. To include walking to fast. Kids in skate
shoes, and people on skate boards. Also Motor Wheel Chairs go 35mph
and some people race them, and those little mini bikes. Also because
our heart might stop, lets not start it in the first place.People
have the right to live and die as they see fit. As long as it is legal.Best Wishes to Her Husband and Family.
I agree with yankees 27. There is risk in crossing the street.She died doing what she loved and that is what counts.Of
course there is a part of us that says others wise, and rightly so. However if
we let that side win out. We die at 300 pounds eating ice cream and cake.Either way in the end we die, so why not have some fun. Our
Her and her family and most of all her Husband. May you find
Blessings and Comfor in your family and in what ever it is you believe in.
DeltaFoxtrot: thank you mr. obvious. Do you also get on here after a car
accident and state the obvious, that driving a car everyday is one of the most
dangerous things we all do? My son participates in these "extreme
sports" and fully knows all risks involved, but I'm glad he can be reminded
by people who have never ventured outside of their comfort zone that what he
LOVES to do could someday take his life. Trust me, most of us would be honored
to die this way, instead of keeling over from eating too much ice cream or some
other "dangerous activity"
Every now and then we all have to be reminded that these "extreme
sports" are dangerous.
A tragic loss for all who followed this courageous woman as she shattered so
many 'glass ceilings'. Her talent and drive was astounding, as was her love of
the sport. My sincere condolences for all her family.
What a tragic loss when a young life is snuffed out so unexpectedly. Our
sympathy to her family. May God bless them and comfort them in this tragic time
God bless all of her loved ones and those that mourn her passing.
So grateful her family made such a difficult decision to donate her organs.
What a selfless gesture in their time of grief. God bless her loved ones.
How sad this courageous woman and world class athlete should die so young. Her
flame burned brighter but was extinguished much too early.
terrible news. Sad end for such a gifted athlete.
God bless her (he is) and her family...so sorry and sad for your family. Our
prayers are with you in your loss.
Rest in the arms of the Lord, young lady. The world of sports has lost a role
This is heart breaking. I feel so sorry for her family and friends. In these
extreme sports, you never know what might happen. Sadly this is one of those
I feel for your family and hope you know all Utahs mourn with you tonight.
Really sorry to be reading this and so saddened by her loss. My respects to her
husband and family ...this is truly a real tragedy.
She was an amazing and talented young woman...it's truly a shame we lost her.
Our thoughts and prayers will be with her husband and family during this
difficult time. I ope she will not be forgotten.
Women everywhere, but especially women involved in athletics no matter what the
sport, have lost a tremendous role model. She simply shone no matter where she
was and what she was doing. Her husband and her family will be in our family's
prayers as they try to cope with this inconsolable loss.
Wow... very sad. God bless her family and friends. She will be missed!
So very sad. God bless.
