During a Slopestyle training run, snowboarder Shaun White jammed his left wrist, generating some concern regarding the overall safety of slope style course, which has been taking its toll on contestants in the weeks leading up to the games.
White had this to say:
"It's frustrating to see it. It puts a damper on the whole mood and it's kind of like you're getting ready to do a big trick and you see something like that. Intimidating. Unfortunate. I'm hoping the builders can make some changes and the course has a little more of a friendly vibe. But I can't change the course. Just doing the best I can."
The multi-medal winner is expected to recover before the event.
UPDATE: White has dropped out of the event.
