Sure, bad luck but... why would you expose yourself to injury risk with $275,000+ on the line dependent on your health?

Agree with the above. Last weeks leading up to the gamee you should be careful. Reminds me of the pro bowl when many athletes said they are grateful they were picked but risk of injury is to high to play.

Yea, it's pretty irresponsible if you ask me. She's obviously in an individual sport so she's not hurting anyone but herself (I can't even imagine the outcry if a guy twisted his ankle playing basketball just days before the SB), but I also think it's worse b/c she really didn't "earn" her spot in the Games. She was invited b/c CF thought she belonged....who knows, maybe she plays basketball every day and this was just really bad luck.

I was going to post that before it started. I remember the sand bag over the shoulder event from 2011 I believe where he killed it.
