Call in to speak with the host
There has been much controversy over the sport of aerial skiing as to the safety of the sport and the athletes. Recent deaths in skiing have prompted the IOC to take another look at the safety of this and other sports in the Olympics. At the Olympic Winter Games in Nagano, Japan, Nikki Stone became America’s first-ever Olympic Champion in the sport of inverted aerial skiing. What made this performance so unbelievable, was the fact that less than two years earlier, a chronic spinal injury prevented her from standing, much less walking or skiing off a 12-foot tall snow jump that launches aerialists 50 feet into the air.
