Downhill ski racing is an incredibly dangerous sport. All you have to do is glance through Lindsey Vonn’s extensive injury history to realize that flying downhill at around 80 miles per hour isn’t the safest pastime.
The sport has seen numerous horrifying crashes that all-too-often result in devastating injuries. On Saturday, American downhill racer Jared Goldberg suffered one of the nastier crashes we’ve seen recently during the World Cup downhill event in Kvitfjell, Norway.
Miraculously, he managed to walk away unharmed:
As noted in the video, Goldberg had only just started his downhill run at Kvitfjell, when he lost control while traveling at around 70 miles per hour just before hitting a jump on the upper part of the course. Despite being down on the course for some time, the 25-year-old Olympian managed to compose himself, and ski down the rest of the course on his own.
Following his spill, the Boston native even took to Instagram to assure his fans he was alright, and that he was happy to avoid injury:
