FILE - In this Jan. 21, 2009 file photo, superpipe skier, Sarah Burke of Canada looks on during a news conference at the Winter X Games, in Aspen, Colo. Burke, who pushed hard to get halfpipe and slopestyle skiing into the Olympics, died in a training accident in 2012, less than a year after the sports were added. Before the 2014 Winter Olympics started, the Canadian freestyle team spread Burke's ashes in the halfpipe and around other areas in the mountains above Sochi. Another tribute they paid to the fallen freeskiing star: All those medals they're bringing home. Canada led the world with nine medals at the freestyle events, including four gold.
