Sochi Olympics: Skier suffers horrible fall, is drug tested hours later (Video)


Canadian skier Kaya Turski is not having much success in Sochi during the 2014 Winter Olympics.

During her second run in the slopestyle competition on Tuesday, Turski suffered a nasty crash – which for a few moments – looked extremely scary.

Dismounting off a railing (looking as if she had too much speed), Turski lost her balance and crashed into the snow below, contorting her body in some frightening ways. It was not a pretty scene, but her day was soon to get worse.

Just hours after leaving the course, hoping to spend the evening with friends and teammates, the Canadian tweeted she was drug tested for the second consecutive night.

Just on my way out to celebrate w ladies & getting pulled into doping 2nd night in a row! Booo! #imcleaniprpromise Celebrate away teamies!!!

Man – talk about having a rough few hours. And to have it happen two nights in a row? Has the IOC no feelings?

To make matters worse, Turski was the pre-Olympics favorite to win gold in the slopestyle event. Obviously, that didn’t happen.
