Connor Fields health update: Olympic BMX star suffered brain bleed after horror crash

Fields mother, Lisa Fields, had earlier thanked those who had sent their well wishes to her son.

“First, I want to tell you that I have read too many times to count on social media “thank you for your support and prayers” but now I know first hand just how much the outpouring of care and support means.

“The support and respect Connor and we have received has helped us more than you will ever (hopefully) know.

“Connor still constantly sleeping but is cogent and communicative when awakened. Latest CT scan shows no additional brain injury and no additional bleeding so he has been transferred from ICU critical care to high level care and does not require surgery at this time.

“Brain function evaluation is ongoing and I will continue to update as I know more and after I get to speak with him.

“Thank you all for your companionship and concern and prayers for Connor. He will thank himself when he is able, but for now I am- on his and all his family’s behalf.”
