Brazil's two-woman bobsled was out of control for much of its first training run yesterday (NBC has the full video), but about two-thirds of the way down, it left the track and slammed pilot Fabiana Santos's head into the side wall.

The two were somehow uninjured, and are expected to compete tomorrow.
