On the 30th of April, Kevin Rolland was left seriously injured after taking a heavy crash while attempting to beat the quarterpipe high air world record in his home resort of La Plagne, France. He was rushed to Grenoble University Hospital in a critical condition, but reports from his medical team today indicate his condition has now been stabilised. Indications are that further statements will be given tomorrow, and we will update this piece as and when we hear more.
At Newschoolers, we want to join countless others in wishing Kevin the fastest possible recovery. We hope his famous drive and fighting spirit will allow him to overcome this. Meanwhile, our thoughts go out to his family and friends in this difficult time.
