(One scene after the other, Karra describes what she saw when Kiri injured her leg during the ski races. What it does show is Kiri's indomitable spirit drives her to succeed despite the sacrifice that is required in achieving the goal.) 

(Kiri begins lifting Mark's leg to relieve her own discomfort)

Russ: what is she doing anyway?

Karra: she’s stretching her leg at the moment.

Russ: leg lifts.

Karra: yes, doing leg lifts. Part of the prescribed cure for her current problem.

Russ: oh yeah right, her knee.

Karra: yeah leg, stress fracture right here.

Russ: okay.

Karra: when I saw her tweak her leg I knew that she had had a stress fracture, I knew exactly what was wrong. Do you know what foolish girl did?

Russ: what?

Karra: she didn’t go to a doctor or anything, she went straight back up and got ready for her second run.

Russ: did somebody stop her?

Karra: no.

Russ: she went on her second run?

Karra: uh-huh and then she went and had lunch and she did her third and fourth run and then she went to the doctor.

Russ: hmmm.

Karra: and by that point she was in a lot of pain. When she did her third run she was in fourth place.

Russ: so she probably could’ve taken maybe a second place if she had been in better shape.

Karra: that’s right.

Russ: oh well, there’s always next year.

Karra: yes.
