STOP WHAT YOURE DOING. THERES A KITTY SWIMMING ON YOUR DASH
I love looking back at older work, good ol’ Burton catalog.
Here’s another feather that we can take out of the Sochi Olympics’ cap: After injuring his wrist while on a practice run on the slopestyle course yesterday, Shaun White has decided to pull out of the event altogether.
This is the first time slopestyle has been included as an Olympic event, and it just lost the sport’s biggest star.
Of course, White’s decision is at least in part the result of Sochi’s failures. The slopestyle course is particularly treacherous, and has already caused serious injuries to a few Olympic riders. Norway’s Torstein Horgmo, who was a medal hopeful, was forced to pull out of the competition after breaking his collarbone during a practice run on Monday.
On Tuesday, Finnish rider Marika Enne was carted off the course with a concussion. (via Shaun White Refuses To Ride Sochi’s Dangerous Slopestyle Course)
