Jamie fell doing a double flat in her second run of World Tour Finals in Whistler Canada. She under rotated and landed in a pike position on the front of her skies then launched on to the right side of her body and was knocked out. She was life-flighted to the Whistler clinic and then another helicopter took her to Vancouver general hospital where her family found out that she had suffered a traumatic brain injury.
These goals are achieved as a part of the Arcade Goal Belt Program which was established as an initiative that guides athletes through the complex recovery process after a life-altering injury.
The belt program, which is similar to a karate belt system, rewards High Fives athletes with an Arcade belt containing a new gold star for each milestone achieved. This framework is designed to provide clarity, support, competition and inspiration for others as these athletes work to rebuild their lives.
