Print More

American snowboarder Kevin Pearce remains in critical but stable condition at a Utah hospital with a brain injury he sustained in a fall while training.

Danielle Burch, a spokeswoman for Pearce’s family, said Monday that Pearce’s condition hadn’t changed since doctors sedated him over the weekend to monitor the pressure on his brain.

Pearce was injured Thursday in Park City while training on a halfpipe. He was preparing for this week’s Olympic qualifying events in California.

The 22-year-old from Norwich, Vt., is a top-ranked halfpipe rider. He remains in the intensive care unit at the University of Utah Hospital.
