Parents witness nightmarish moment at Olympics Published: February 13, 2014

Arielle Gold was preparing to make her Olympic debut Wednesday, as one of the handful of American snowboarders looking to medal in the women's halfpipe. Gold is a 17-year-old from Steamboat Spring, Colo., who had previously performed well at the X Games and the Youth Olympic Games, according to Yahoo Sports.

She was getting ready for the qualifying round when everything went wrong.

Gold was doing a practice run at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park when she tumbled hard, hitting the snow, contorting her body and suffering one of the more gruesome falls of the Sochi Games. Gold had to be helped off the halfpipe. She separated her shoulder and couldn't compete in the event (which teammates Kaitlyn Farrington and Kelly Clark won gold and bronze in, respectively), Yahoo Sports reports.
