Canadian Olympic snowboarder Laurie Blouin carried off on stretcher

The Canadian Press and News Staff | posted Friday, Feb 9th, 2018

Canadian snowboarder Laurie Blouin was carried off the Phoenix Park course on a stretcher after a nasty training fall on Friday at the Pyeongchang Olympics.

The reigning world champion in slopestyle fell heavily when her board got stuck in a crack after she landed a double jump.

In a statement, the Canadian Olympic Committee said Blouin “has been taken to the regional hospital as a precaution. She is conscious and alert and on her way back to the Village with a team doctor. Her condition will continue to be monitored.”
