Even the world's greatest athletes have bad days. Sometimes, they have really bad days. And unfortunately, those occasionally coincide with a high stakes competition at the Olympics. That means some dramatic spills, wipeouts, major blunders, and crashes are all but inevitable during the Games. That's already true at the PyeongChang Winter Games, where a handful of snowboarders, lugers, cross-country skiers, downhill skiers, and more have taken some serious tumbles.
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.
