So i was at the Freestyle Skiing Ontario Provincial competition where i was training to lay down an "ok" run. In training i fell on a misty 720 and hurt my hip flexer really bad. I thought i was done for the day. Last minute (after watching my friends throw down in training), i decided to try and compete with the injury.
After landing my practice run the competition started and i was ready to go. After hitting the first rail feature and first jump, i was in an "ok" spot to try a rodeo 720 on the last jump. Of course i was hyped and took in too much speed. i over rotated the trick to my face. I thought i was fine until i was about to drop in on my second run when i forgot what my run was and what the course looked like. I stepped back and took it in for a second. Minutes later i forgot where i was, how i got there and started freaking out.
Later on my memory came back, but holy S**t that was one of the scariest things that's ever happened when i was skiing.
Had I dropped in for my second run, I believe that i could have really hurt myself and given myself more than just a minor concussion.
All I want to say to the community is to not be so naive about head injuries. Im lucky I got away with just a concussion. B
Be careful out there guys.
