Winter Olympics 2018: French skier Kevin Rolland suffers brutal slam in halfpipe
USA's Torin Yater-Wallace also had a rough slam in the competition

French skier Kevin Rolland took a nasty spill in the pipe during one of his runs and it was tough to watch.
Rolland came down on top pipe and split the lip, taking a brunt of the contact in .. well, an area in which you do not want to take the brunt of collision.
Somehow, some way, Rolland was able to ski off under his own power after that crash. That alone should earn him a medal.
The Frenchman wasn't the only competitor to take a heavy slam on Wednesday night, either. Team USA's Torin Yater-Wallace took a very hard spill of his own and, luckily, he too was able to walk away without serious injury.
