As reported on FasterSkier, Unni Odegaard was recently involved in an accident in Norway. She was hit by car from behind while rollerskiing. She was in a coma for two days andÂ is currently in the hospital recovering andÂ waiting for the results of a CT scan.
UnniÂ studied and ski raced for five years in the US, as a collegiate skier for the University of Colorado and also as a member of the Subaru Factory Team. Unni was well-liked in the North American ski scene and she made many friends during her time here.
