    Not sure she realized how bad she was. I think you gotta love the spirit she showed. That`s a way to fire up the team.

    The spirit was good. But everyone must realize that after a trama like that most people are very clueless as to what just happened and the serveness of it. So they can get hit by a truck and get up and keep on walking or running. They are still in shock...

    Yet another example of how stupid cheerleaders are. What if she`d broken her back, and doing that had severed her spine or something? She could`ve killed herself, just because of a stupid basketball game! I`m not saying basketball`s stupid, I used to play myself, but come on, who in thier right mind would do that and risk further injury? She must`ve been knocked silly.

    fair play to her. Reminds me of bert trautmann - manchester city goalkeeper who broke his neck in the 1956 fa cup final, in the days before substitutions (and presumably medical experts near the pitch), and he finished the match, including a save at the feet of one of the opposing players. City won. Trautmann was out injured for a year.

    Cheerleaders must undergo some serious brain conditioning. Play the fight song and they...just...can`t...help...it...

    Back in the day when your truly was a cheerleader I whacked my head (with-not a typo- my frickin` pom pons!) and got this massive bump on my head and I didn`t even go "ow-that kinda hurt..." Just kept on going...
    Then when I got home I saw the bump in the mirror and it had about the same diameter of a pop can.
    The pom pons had really hard plastic handles and I REALLY whacked my head on one of them. I`m saying that because I know somebody`s gonna be all, "u hit ur head on a soft thingie?"

    Cheerleaders are absolutely programmed. I doubt she did this to show she is ok. She probably did it out of habit!!!!! I`m dead serious too. My sister was a cheerleader and she drove me up the ef`n wall...still brings back bad memories. She did her cheers constantly, riding down the road, walking in the mall, sitting at home, watching tv at home...if she heard a song come on that they practiced a dance to she would start doing her cheer and dance..just suddenly..aaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!! lol I bet you 1 million dollars she couldn`t have kept from doing the cheer even if she wanted too...and I know I would win that bet too...(takes deep breath)..that video annoys me

    You guys are being a bit harsh. Obviously, she wasn`t hurt too much. If she had hurt herself enough to be able to break her neck by moving her hands, I doubt she`d be able to move her arms. They would have secured her hands. Heck, I`d be surprised if she was awake.

    Okay, from my training as a first responder and EMS volunteer, I know that if her injuries were as serious as a broken neck, she would have been completely immobilized with her arms strapped to the stretcher with Spider Straps. Enough said. Notice the shot of her falling was a far-away shot. Couldn`t really see her fall. Just another desperate cry for attention from a cheerleader.

    She probably had no idea that she had broken her neck after that fall. She wasn`t watching herself fall, and more than likely she was in shock afterwards. Like someone else mentioned, when some people go through trauma, they don`t realize the severity of it until later. Besides, most of the time (not always) you can`t really tell what you`ve broken until you`ve been x-rayed. But I think it was cool of her to do what she did at the end. I would have done something similar if I had something like that happen in the sport that I do. I hope that she has a successful recovery.
