Olympic skier is stable after surgery

  • Olympic skier Maria Komissarova underwent a "successful" spine surgery after she broke her back. 

    Reports suggest that she is now in a stable condition and the accident didn't result in damaging her spinal cord. Komissarova got a metal implant and surgeons rebuilt one of her vertebrae. 

    Vladimir Putin is expected to pay her a visit and we won't be seeing her on the slopes during this year's Games. 

    The Journal reports she was conscious following the accident.
