Kikkan Randall undergoes procedure for blood clot


U.S. Ski Team cross-country star Kikkan Randall is facing the most severe test of her life as a blood clot developing in her left leg caused her leg to swell to twice its normal size. The clot may have been the result of May-Thurner syndrome, the use of the an estrogen based contraceptive device, or be the result of lengthy plane travel, perhaps exasperated by dehydration.
    Randall underwent medical procedures Wednesday and Thursday (April 9-10) which shrank the clot by an estimated 70 percent.
