Sarah Hendrickson didn’t medal in Sochi — a bad crash tore her knee last year and limited her Olympic jump lengths — but the 19-year-old from Salt Lake City made history as the first woman to take an official ski jump at a Winter Games. "Ya I didn't win a medal," she tweeted. "You can judge me all you want but you'll never know how hard I worked to compete today as an Olympian." The event had been open only to men since 1924.
