By The Associated Press

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) ' Canadian freestyle skier Sarah Burke remains in critical condition Thursday after a successful operation to repair a tear to an artery that caused bleeding between her skull and brain.

The doctor who performed the operation, William Couldwell, says the medical team must "observe the course of her brain function before making definitive pronouncements about Sarah's prognosis for recovery."

Burke, a four-time Winter X Games champion in halfpipe skiing, injured herself while practicing on the halfpipe in Park City on Tuesday.
