Sarah Hendrickson's gold medal dreams effectively ended when she tore her ACL and MCL in a bad crash late last year. The knee injury has limited the jump lengths of the 19-year-old American and Hendrickson will have to compete in Tuesday's event jumping from a lower gate.
Despite that disappointment, Hendrickson will still head home with an Olympics to remember because she'll be the first woman to ever take an official ski jump at a Winter Games. Despite being an event for men since the first Winter Games in 1924, this is the first time ski jumping has been an event for the women.
