Norwegian Torstein Horgmo out of Olympics pending injury

Torstein Horgmo

Professional snowboarder and Olympic medal hopeful, Torstein Horgmo, is out of the Winter Olympics with a fractured collarbone. The injury was sustained after a hard crash Monday at the top of the Olympic slopestyle course.

“Injuries and falls are part of this sport, but the timing is really bad,” Horgmo said in a statement released by the Norwegian team.

It is reported that athletes had shown concern about certain steep kickers prior before official practice began on Monday. Now, organizers will be trimming the tops and bottoms of some jumps. Organizers maintain that Horgmo’s accident happened because he was attempting a really hard trick, not because of the course.
