While flying down the luge track at 70 miles per hour, Sweeney's sled wobbled out of control, eventually turning her sideways.

As she was getting into an ambulance, Sweeney said, "I'm fine".

Sue Sweeney, center, the mother of Emily Sweeney of the United States, cries out as her daughter crashes on the final run during the women's luge final at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. According to the online broadcast, Sweeney was on her way to a hospital.

"I don't think Curve 9 is risky, but I am anxious because it's technical", Mazdzer said in a video for NBC, explaining how it can throw a luger off by tenths of a second, which can be the difference in a medal. She was taken to the hospital for evaluation.

"I'm very sore and pretty stiff", Sweeney told NBC. So thanks for all the support, you guys. "I knew I wanted to continue being an athlete, but I didn't want to only be an athlete".

This was the first Olympics for Sweeney, who missed out on a spot in the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

"Curve 9 is extremely challenging, and the people that can [handle it] four times, will have the best shot at an Olympic medal".
