Terrible Fans Threw Snowballs at Skier DURING Race to Distract Him (VIDEO)


It’s normally not hard to screen sports fans for contraband items, but when it’s a ski event, and they decide they want to throw snowballs, there’s not a lot you can do to stop them.

Such was the case at the Alpine Ski World Cup event, where rivals Henrik Kristoffersen and Marcel Hirscher squared off. Fans decided to lob snowballs at the Norwegian Kristofferson, but fortunately, none of the projectiles hit him during his run. 

Underselling the crappiness of the situation, Kristofferson offered to the AP, “That was disrespectful. That was not cool at all.” he was also visibly upset after crossing the finish line, as cameras caught him yelling and pointing back at the culprits.

Kristofferson came in second but pledged that he would have lost even in the absence of the snowballs.

Still, they couldn’t have helped.
