Spring training is for trying your absolute hardest—up to but not inclusive of any effort that might land you on the DL for Opening Day. Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin very nearly tried too hard today.
Kevin Rolland of France suffered an especially nasty fall during the freestyle skiing men’s halfpipe final, landing right on the lip of the pipe and crashing in hard before tumbling backwards.
Canadian ski cross racer Chris Del Bosco fought gravity and lost during a qualifying heat, losing control at the worst moment and catapulting some 30 feet down the course and landing hard on his right side.
Cars with automatic brake sensors built into them are wonderful when used in cities and other places where they can keep unaware drivers from killing cyclists. However, a bike race’s lead car is perhaps the worst possible vehicle for the technology, and five cyclists were the unfortunate victims of a lead car at the…
Markus Schairer was in fourth position heading towards the penultimate jump of the first quarterfinal of men’s snowboard cross when something went wrong that caused his board to get out from under him.
