I feel bad for the snowboarder Kevin Pearce. He took a dangerous risk coming back three weeks after a concussion three weeks ago. That made him much more susceptible to brain injury this time.
I don’t want to be disrespectful. But, when do rankings change after injuries?
Why are they using present tense? You don’t come back from brain injuries over night. It may be months before they even know the extent and permanence of the damage.
Realistically, someone else will have to take Pearce’s place next week in the Olympic trials.
