She was conscious and was able to walk off the ice with some assistance.

American luger Emily Sweeney was taken to hospital after a horrific crash at the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang.

Sweeney told reporters she was okay as she was helped off the course and after being attended to the medical staff, was diagnosed with bumps and bruises. The stands were filled with fans cheering raucously, and they immediately went silent waiting for some sort of sign that Sweeney would be all right.

Luge involves one person on a sled hurtling down a track and Sweeney was on her final run of the day.

Sweeney, a 24-year-old from ME, was able to walk off the course under her own power. So thanks for all the support, you guys.

There were concerns that she may have suffered leg or spinal injuries in the crash. "I knew I wanted to continue being an athlete, but I didn't want to only be an athlete". A USA Luge official said she was taken to a clinic at the Olympic Village for evaluation.

Sweeney, who is also a member of the National Guard, missed out on a spot on the 2010 Winter Olympics team after losing a special race-off - to her big sister. The crash happened around Curve 9 of the track, with Sweeney having started to lose control of her sled moments before.

Spectators and viewers expressed their concern via social media as many feared the USA athlete had hit her head and neck.

Germany's Natalie Geisenberger won the gold model, while American Erin Hamlin finished in sixth place.
