French Skiier Marion Rolland Is Just Embarrassing (Video)
Just when we thought Shaq had won the award for most embarrassing moment of the week, along came French skier Marion Rolland to steal the spotlight.
It is no secret that the sport of alpine skiing can be quite dangerous at times, as competitors are always at risk to experience rather disastrous tumbles down the hill, but rarely do we witness such a humiliating fall right out of the starting gate. After all, there is barely a slope at that point.
Unfortunately, all that was needed was a tiny hill and some snow for Marion to take this rather awkward spill. Maybe it is a good thing she didn’t make it through to the more difficult sections of the course. The last thing the 2010 Vancouver Games needs is another horrifying tragedy. One is already too many.
