It looked like Logan’s career on the slopes was over. However the athlete battled back hard and after a year rehabilitating she returned to the course to try for a medal.

Another Team USA hopeful was Keri Herman. The skier was in 10th place in the Olympic Slopestyle Skiing debut after a tough time on the slopes. While the athlete was strong, she seemed to have an issue with nerves at the beginning and then an issue with elements and rough landings.
