Remeber her? In the Olympics she fell trying to do a showboat move, costing her the gold.

Well, this time there was no show boating, but a few days ago, she fell on the last jump when all she needed to do was stay up in order to win.

What a choker...

Haha. That's in the hybrid snowboarding sport right? Out of the 4 people who go at the same time 3 usually fall. That was the best sport last winter Olympics.

Well, even though 3 usually fall, it was a routine jump at the very end, she shouldn't have fallen this time

I'd be looking into a different sport, if I were her. I can't imagine the anguish she must be going through. :-D

DO you have a link or video or evidence for this? That last jump I remember being usually the one with the biggest air and usually is anything but routine. Maybe someone was right behind her.

I know in the Olympics it was just plain stupid. Everyone else had crashed and she had like a 20 second lead and blew it. If this was the same thing than mannnnn that sucks!

I saw a video on PTI, but I don't have a link to one.

It was not big air at all though, and it was routine. There were people a couple seconds behind her, but if she had landed the jump cleanly, which she should have, she would have gotten first.

It was on PTI I see. Haha that sucks big time then. :*)

somebody already updated her wikipedia page with it.

She made a similar mistake in the 2007 X-Games, in a wreck near the finish line.

Yea, it must suck knowing you're only the second best at your sport in the X-Games. :-b

Yeah, I was watching it on TV when it happened. I just had some sort of feeling that she was going to screw up the finals... and she did. 8-o

I feel bad for her. :-/
