As bad as it was and as much sympathy as i have for her, this was not nearly as bad as most other crashes in the sport. While she may be a multi-gold athlete there's no reason to plaster this crash so heavily. I guess it's just more over-exageration by the media.
Still though, hopefully her recovery goes well and she is back at peak performance by Sochi.
