"If you couldn't decipher what the Swedish chef was saying, this is American downhill skier Scott Macartney crashing at the World Cup at Kitzbuehel, Austria yesterday. He's doing fine and is expected to make a full recovery, even though he was doing almost 88 mph when he hit the track."
He went from 88 mph to zero using his face as a brake pad. On snow and ice. Sounds comfortable.
