Youngest American Olympian Can't Compete

Posted: Updated:
WHITEFISH -

Even though Whitefish freestyle skier Maggie Voisin can't compete in the Olympics, she's still staying in Sochi to cheer on her teammates.

Voisin fractured her right fibula during a practice run on Saturday.

She's now getting around with crutches, and managed to walk through the opening ceremonies.

Her maternal grandmother, Susie Moore, says they're looking at this as a freak accident, but Maggie still plans to stay through the closing ceremonies.

She'll have to watch the Olympic debut of slopestyle skiing from the sidelines on Tuesday.

She doesn't plan to be down long, though.

"Maggie will be back. She said something to the effect of four to six weeks. I don't know if that's being optimistic," said Moore, remembering a talk they had had over the weekend.

Her parents and paternal grandmother are with her in Sochi.

Moore says they plan to leave before Maggie, on February 15.
