Shaun White jams wrist on slopestyle course in Sochi

BY foxsports • February 4, 2014

Shaun White fell and dinged his left wrist during training Tuesday on a ramp leading to one of the jumps on the treacherous Olympic slopestyle course.

White called the course ''intimidating.''

He says the wrist injury shouldn't be a problem for the slopestyle contest, which begins Thursday - the day before the opening ceremony.

Same for the rest of his injuries, all suffered while training and qualifying to make it to Sochi.

Already, the course has taken out one of the top riders, Torstein Horgmo of Norway, who broke his collarbone in practice Monday.

Finals for slopestyle are Saturday with the halfpipe scheduled for next Tuesday.
