The slopestyle competitions so far at the Sochi Olympics have produced their share of big crashes, whether they’ve involved snowboarders or freestyle skiers.

Yesterday’s women’s ski slopestyle action at Rosa Khutor saw multiple incidents, including perhaps the nastiest one of the Games so far involving Canadian rider Yuki Tsubota.

Tsubota suffered an apparent jaw injury but, thankfully, it appears she is largely OK otherwise.

“There is no other issues with other appendages or parts of her body, no concussion or anything like that,” Canadian freestyle coach Peter Judge said in an update yesterday.
