Lindsey Jacobellis's epic fail

Okay, so picture this scene.

You are a female snowboarder and the Winter Olympics have decided to recognize your sport for the first time. You're totally stoked.

Now, it's the race and you're going great guns. Better than that: you're way out in the lead going into the second last jump. Your options are:

a) play it safe and win a GOLD medal. Your grandkids will tell their grandkids.

b) showboat and 'tweak' a gnarly method air.

You opt for b). This is what happens ...
