FILE - In a Jan. 28, 2010, file photo, Sarah Burke, of Canada, reacts after failing to place in the top-three finishers in the slopestyle skiing women's final at the Winter X Games at Buttermilk Mountain outside Aspen, Colo. Burke died Jan. 19, 2012, nine days after a training accident on a halfpipe in Park City, Utah, and about nine months after the International Olympic Committee said "yes" to her longtime dream. Burke's friends will bring their snowflakes to the Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia, wearing necklaces shaped like the snowflake tattoo the late Canadian star had etched on her foot.
