Sochi, Russia (SportsNetwork.com) - American moguls skier Heidi Kloser pulled out of the Sochi Olympics on Friday after injuring her right leg in a crash.

Kloser, considered a medal contender, was hurt during a training run Thursday when she crashed on the top jump.

The injuries kept her from making qualification runs but she still could have tried to qualify for the finals Saturday.

Reigning Olympic champion Hannah Kearney of the U.S. posted the top score in qualifying on Thursday.
