When Ski Jumping Meets Freestyle Aerials

The 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver are only a few weeks away, and although much of the talk heading into the Opening Ceremonies has revolved around the ice rinks (thanks to Stephen Colbert’s US Speed Skating sponsorship and Canada’s undeniable love for hockey), that shouldn’t take any attention away from the action on the slopes.

The only problem is that, at times, it can be hard to keep track of all the different events going on in the ski park.  Needless to say, that can become especially dangerous when it is the competitors themselves who are the ones becoming confused.

Need proof?  Look no further than this guy, who can’t seem to decide whether he is taking part in the ski jumping or freestyle aerials competition.  I think it is fair to say that he didn’t win either.
