SALT LAKE CITY - Kirsten Moore-Towers suffered a severe concussion in Aug. 2016 in a practice collision with her pairs partner, Michael Marinaro.
It would eventually knock the Canadian team out of the previous Grand Prix season.
"It was the day that changed my life, for the better," she said Friday. "I learned a lot about myself and my partnership."
Moore-Towers learned it wasn't a good idea to keep to herself how badly she felt for a month, a month where she vomited every day and often suffered from blurry vision. Or to compete two days after the accident happened.
