Sochi Olympics Skier Heidi Kloser Breaks Her Leg DURING Her Event, But Makes It For The Opening Ceremonies! On Crutches!

heidi kloser walks with united states team olympics after horrible injury

Oh nooooes!

The Olympic Opening Ceremony hadn’t even started and a skier is already out!

We were devastated when American Moguls skier Heidi Kloser crashed on Thursday, and completely tore her ACL, suffered a partial MCL tear, AND broke her femur, and she wasn’t even at the starting gate!

The 21-year-old Vail, CO native was on a training run prior to the moguls qualifying.

How heartbreaking!!!

After the injury, Heidi asked her dad Mike Kloser if he still considered her an Olympian, to which he said, “Of course you are.” Mike added:

"She's completely bummed, as we are. She was really hoping, all things considered, to at least be able to start in Saturday's final qualifier. Regardless, she plans to walk in the opening ceremonies.”

In the end, Heidi was able to attend the ceremony with the help of some crutches! We're so glad that she got to walk with her team!

    What an idiot! She is a professional skier and she manages to break her leg before the actual olympic race!!!

    She tore her ACL not broke her leg—very different.

    Re: annainparis – You are an idiot. They have qualifiers before the finals and the athletes still have to go hard during qualifiers to make it for a chance at a medal. Not to mention she's 1 of 4 athletes that have hurt themselves in qualifiers and have had to back out of the games. Geezus.

    Re: COLO – Backing out of the game you have been preparing for 4 years is the most idiotic waste of time!!!
