Yuki Tsubota Probably Broke Her Jaw in this Huge Slopestyle Crash

Stephen Douglas

Yuki Tsubota may have suffered a fractured jaw in this brutal crash during the finals of the slopestyle competition on Tuesday. The Canadian was on the third of three jumps when she crashed, hitting her face on her knee. Tsubota was taken off the course on a stretcher. If you’re concerned about Tsubota, don’t be. Canadian Freestyle Ski Association president Peter Judge isn’t. From the Daily Mail:

"‘What happened: she just came forward and hit her jaw on her knee. It’s pretty common, that kind of thing.’"

Pretty common.
