Czech snowboarder Sarka Pancochova was the latest athlete to suffer a brutal crash on Sochi’s controversial slopestyle course.

She hit her head so hard that her helmet split open. Remarkably, she was able to get up and finish the course (skipping the jumps) after her fall.

The slopestyle course was called “sketchy” and “dangerous” earlier in the week. Shaun White dropped out of the event over safety concerns.

The crash was brutal but she got up and rode down the mountain.
