The first-ever women’s Nordic Jumping World Champion Lindsey Van took a digger while training this week in Park City, at the Utah Olympic Park. Van somehow crashed and came face to face with the jump.

She’s OK, and back jumping again, though a little bruised and scraped. The jumps are covered with plastic treads or ‘meanies,’ and Van joked about her unwelcome exfoliation, calling it a ‘plastic facial.’ Youch.
