According to the Associated Press via Yahoo! News on Feb. 11, this happened during Tsubota's last of three jumps on a course that can best be described as extremely challenging.

That said, the Tuesday crash meant that Yuki Tsubota fell into the landing zone while her snow ride released and she slid down the hill in a hurry.

When she came to a stop, the 20-year-old athlete did not move for a number of minutes after tumbling a long distance. At the same time, Yuki was treated by an Olympics medical team who think she may have fractured her jaw in the dangerous incident.

By way of background, despite her crash, Yuki Tsubota finished sixth with a score of 71.60 during her first run at Sochi's Rosa Khutor Extreme Park while her Canadian colleague, Dara Howell, took the gold.

Carly Agro of CBS sports was on the scene as she snapped a shot of Yuli Tsubota being carried away from the part on a stretcher. The pictures shows a grim scene at Sochi.
