Team USA's Emily Sweeney emerged without serious injury following a scary crash in her final run at the Winter Olympics in the women's singles luge on Tuesday.
While flying down the luge track at 70 miles per hour, Sweeney's sled wobbled out of control, eventually turning her sideways.
During the fourth run of the event, American luger Emily Sweeney bounced around the course and took several frightening hits against the rails. She walked off on her own, refusing a stretcher. The stands were filled with fans cheering raucously, and they immediately went silent waiting for some sort of sign that Sweeney would be all right.
Emily Sweeney, 24, was injured in the final run of the luge competition in Pyeonchang after crashing against a wall around Curve 9.
Curve 9 has been a problem for sliders throughout the early portion of the Olympics, causing many to skid, lose control and lose some time.
