And while the Olympics is obviously intended to showcase the wildly impressive skills of the world's most elite athletes in their individual disciplines, you'd be lying if you weren't also interested in seeing a bit of the rough stuff. So, in the interest of giving you a taste of the gnarlier side of things, we've hand-picked some of the most insane crashes and wipeouts to go down during the Winter Games so far. And just a heads up: we're not including any in which anyone was seriously injured.
This Dipped Ice Cream Cone Tastes Just Like Carrot Cake
Incredibly, American Luger Emily Sweeney walked away unhurt from a terrifying crash on her fourth run.
Whether it was the crazy winds or not, slopestyle proved to be tough on quite a few snowboarders. Switzerland's Sina Candrian made a pretty hard crash landing.
Norway's Simen Hegstad Krueger (right) wiped out pretty badly during the men's 15km skiathlon cross-country skiing event, causing him to fall far behind. Incredibly, he managed to make up for it and eventually ended up winning the gold medal.
The German two-man bobsled team pushed things a little too hard during their third of four runs, and tipped their sled on its side just before the finish line. They were fine, and even ended up taking the lead.
