KITZBUEHEL, Austria (Reuters) - American skier Scott Macartney, injured in a spectacular crash in Kitzbuehel's World Cup downhill on Saturday, has regained consciousness and is recovering well.

"According to the U.S. ski team coaches, Scott Macartney is awake and feeling good," organizers said on Sunday.

The 30-year-old from Crystal Mountain crashed at full speed in the final jump of the downhill, fell on his back and lost his helmet.

That twitch as he laid on the ground sure doesn't look good. Looks like a seizure.
