WTF: Olympic Snowboarder Crashes So Hard, Her Helmet Splits

This is Czech Olympian Sarka Pancochova. She took a nasty fall during the women’s slopestyle finals on Sunday. How nasty? HER HELMET BROKE. That is literally the one thing a helmet should not do.


Keep in mind: Pancochova wiped out on a slopestyle course that’s been called comically dangerous AND she still completed her run, finishing fifth. (American Jamie Anderson took the gold.) Pancochova is a badass.
