The details (from wikipedia)


Yvonne Cernota (19 September 1979 – 12 March 2004) was a German bobsledder who competed from 2000 to 2004 at the position of the brakeswomen. She won a bronze medal in the two-woman event at the 2003 FIBT World Championships in Winterberg.

Cernota was killed in a training accident at the bobsleigh, luge, and skeleton track in Königssee, Germany when she has changed on the position of the pilot. Less than two weeks before, she had finished fourth with fellow German bobsledder Cathleen Martini at the World Championships on the same track. It was the first bobsleigh fatality since 1990 and the 42nd overall since being included in the Winter Olympic program in 1924.

At the time of her death, Cernota was a student majoring in biochemistry.
