Pancochova was participating in the women's snowboarding slopestyle finals when she missed a landing, causing her to crash. The medical staff quickly tended to her, but she ended up somehow being fine and finished her run.

The 23-year-old snowboarder finished fifth in the event, but given the fact that her helmet split in half, she has to be happy that she's OK.
