The fearless and aggressive Kelsey Serwa won X Games gold in 2011, but it came at a cost: She was carrying so much speed over the final kicker in an attempt to edge the charging Ophelie David that she crashed across the finish line, suffering two compression fractures at T7 and T9. The 26-year-old has had a lot of time off-course since then -- she tore her left ACL in 2012 and re-tore it in March 2013. She returned to earn silver in the 2014 Olympics for Canada, then took more time off in order to study full-time.
