In an unfortunate accident during snowboard slopestyle practice in Sochi, Russia for the Winter Olympic Games, Torstein Horgmo (NOR) broke his collarbone and will be unable to compete.

According to ESPN, “The 26-year-old Horgmo landed heavily on his face and right shoulder while attempting a difficult trick on a rail near the top of the course and was taken to the athletes’ hospital at Krasnaya Polyana, said team manager Thomas Harstad.”

We here at the Snowboard Mag offices are hoping for a speedy recovery because watching Torstein shred is a true pleasure.

Get well soon!
