2014 Sochi Olympics: Norwegian Snowboarder Kjersti Buaas Suffers Horrifying Crash During Slopestyle Run (GIF)
Among them was Norwegian snowboarder Kjersti Buaas, who was taking part in the women’s slopestyle qualification. And in a frightening turn of events, Buaas’ Olympic experience nearly ended before the torch was even lit when she took a nasty tumble during one of her runs.
Here it is:
According to Buaas, she “only ruptured a muscle,” and despite some severe back and stomach pains, she’s still expected to take part in the women’s slopestyle semi-finals on Sunday.
Only ruptured a muscle?!?! That’s the kind of talk that would impress even the toughest of hockey players.
