Olympic Ski Champion’s Epic Wipeout Makes The Media Eat Snow Too


It wasn’t just Austrian skier Matthias Mayer who ate snow when he wiped out at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, on Tuesday.

Fellow Austrian, Marcel Hirscher, snagged the gold medal in the event. France’s Alexis Pinturault and Victor Muffat-Jeandet secured silver and bronze, respectively.

Mayer won gold in the men’s downhill event at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. He will defend his title on Thursday. Both he and the unidentified media member appeared uninjured following Tuesday’s incident.
