Ms Kildow skied hard and achieved her own definition of triumph in Italy; she fell going 50 miles per hour for an estimated 15 feet; yet she decided while in the hospital, having her back and pelvis examined, that she would reenter the race!
She did finish the race with a lot of effort; coming in at number eight! The reporters covering the event were very impressed with her fortitude and her resolve.
She stated that she had won according to her definition because she had completed the race in the best way that she could. Reporters said that this completion will give her the necessary confidence that she will need in future races.
