Winter Olympics: Slopestyle course claims second crash victim
ROSA KHUTOR, Russia (AFP) - Finnish snowboarder Marika Enne on Tuesday became the second crash victim of the Sochi Winter Olympics' controversial slopestyle course, which has already shattered the hopes of one gold medal favourite.
The 21-year-old crash-landed on the final jump, hitting the snow and tumbling forward on a course widely condemned as too dangerous.
She was able to complete her run, but was then carried away on a stretcher.
"She hit her head," Finland team coach Mats Lindfors said.
