“Crazy Canuck” suffered Brain Damage from Skiing Injuries

by John McKiggan

Dave Irwin was one of the famous Crazy Canucks, the legendary Canadian Olympic ski team. He was one of the greatest skiers in Canadian history, and one of the fastest skiers in the world. Now he is a survivor of brain injury; the result of repeated concussions from some of his spectacular wipe outs during his downhill racing career.

I just watched the documentary Downhill Racer on CBC’s Fifth Estate about Dave Irwin. It is a powerful story about Irwin’s brain injury and his struggle for recovery.

If there is anyone who still doubts that concussions due to sports injuries can have catastrophic consequences, they need to watch this documentary.
