Sarah Burke Tribute

"The brave do not live forever and the cautious do not live at all"

Great tribute to a skier who left this earth last week after a tragic accident in mid December. Last night at the x-games a place where she made her mark known, family and friends gathered to honor this great athlete. She would have been defending her gold medal at this years games. 

Burke was among the most popular and accomplished free-skiers in the history of the sport, she won six X games gold medals. Before that, she spend most of her time lobbying to have female skiers including in the Winter X Games and also played a crucial role in getting half-pipe skiing added to the Winter Olympics. The sport is set to debut in 2014 in Russia where Burke would have been the gold medal favorite. 

The world lost a good one. Watch the video, its a great tribute.
