    That was a nasty crash and a gutsy third jump. Nice job.

    And keep in mind that the third jump won W1 nationals by 12 feet!

    I saw the balk on the first jump so I knew the third jump was to win and I also saw that she broke a rib. That is crazy. Watching that reminds me of why I don't jump.

    Yep -- All three of the videos/pictures tell the same story: It's better to watch this event than to do it.

    The 2nd video proves one thing. Krista is a baller. And more man than some of us here. I'd probably still be crying for momma. LOL

    Women jumpers are the toughest people I know. First there was Alex winning collegiate nationals on her third jump with a broken wrist, dislocated shoulder and a large cut on her head. Now there's Krista falling right in line with the broken ribs.

    No more crashing Krista! That hurts just to watch.. I never took up jumping because everyone who does it gets hurt. The season in PA is just too short to risk injury, but then again I should not talk since I kneeboard and barefoot in place of jumping. I can definitely understand why people do it. It has to be a major adrenaline rush to fly through the air like that. I have been told approaching the ramp feels like you are skiing into a wall.

    I keep telling here "Binding Side Up" but she has a thing for paramedics.

    When I was racing cars, the saying was "keep the shiny side up." But we still had the same people always on their lid. LOL

    Shane, 80% of accidents on the track involve 20% of the drivers, even worse for highway statistics.

    Am I a jumper that wants to be a slalom skier? Or a slalom skier that wants to be a jumper?
