Norwegian snowboarder Kjersti Buaas had a rough day at the Sochi Slopestyle course on Thursday, taking a faceplant at the start of the course. Bear in mind, this is the same course that prompted American Shaun White to withdraw from the event on Wednesday for safety/injury concerns.
Good news: Buaas is okay, as Instagram News™ reports:
“Oh snap…That was a real scare!!! Good news is that I only ruptured a muscle… I am so grateful it’s nothing worse, even though I have some severe pain in my stomach and back.”
