Teammate Hannah Kearney saw Kloser perform a back flip off the first jump in her run. The next thing Kearney saw was ominous.

“Next thing I know, they closed the course,” Kearney said, which almost always indicates a crash. It’s a heartbreaking turn of events for Kloser, which is made even more gut wrenching when you read her father Mike’s Facebook post.

Kloser’s father assured his daughter that “Of course she was” still an Olympian but added that Heidi is obviously still “so sad.”

It’s harsh, bitter, and unfair reality of Olympic sports. It’s a tenuous build every four years for these athletes who dedicate years and years of their life. When a terrible turn of luck strikes, you can only shake your head.
