They didn't blame it on the snowboarder

Norwegian snowboarding medal hope Torstein Horgmo has been ruled out of Sochi2014 after breaking his collar bone in an accident on the slopestyle course. This has been enough to cause the authorities to make alterations to the course. Pity no-one paid similar attention to the accidents which happened at Vancouver2010 prior to the death of Georgian luger Nodar Kumaritashvili in a similarly preventable accident. Instead they blamed it on the luger.
