Czech Snowboarder's Helmet Breaks on Controversial Sochi Slope

Czech Snowboarder's Helmet Breaks on Controversial Sochi Slope

On Sunday in Sochi, Czech snowboarder Sarka Pancochova crashed so hard on the slopestyle course that her helmet broke apart. This is the same slope American skier Bode Miller criticized and said could kill a person.

Miller blasted it after his teammate Marco Sullivan took a dangerous spill on the slope. American snowboarder Shaun White dropped out of the event because of safety concerns.

Here are pictures of the incident. Pancochova was able to stand up and walk away without injury.
