Irish skeleton slider Sean Greenwood goes airborne, hits ice, finishes run (GIF)


Ireland’s Sean Greenwood loses control on his second run in Friday’s men’s skeleton competition at the Sochi, Olympics.

Greenwood attempts to regain control as he rounds a turn but ends up high on the wall, eventually finding himself airborne.

Greenwood never actually lets go of his sled, he lands on his side, sliding down the track, momentarily in direct contact with the ice.

Greenwood recovered from his mistake and finished his room, and did not seem hurt.
