Maddie Bowman breaks helmet after falling in halfpipe

Maddie Bowman

Maddie Bowman received medical attention after falling during the finals of the women’s freeski halfpipe on Tuesday in PyeongChang.

Bowman got three runs in the halfpipe and fell after attempting the same trick all three times. She was unable to complete the 900 she was attempting, and she ended up falling so hard in her final run that the top of her helmet came off.

Bowman received medical attention but was able to stand up and walk it off.

After winning the gold medal at the Sochi Games in 2014 in the halfpipe, Bowman was unable to defend her top spot and ended up with a disappointing finish. Whether it was due to the disappointment or hitting her head and the symptoms that could follow, Bowman was seen crying afterwards.

Bowman was angling for the top score and had a “go big or go home” mentality. Being unable to complete the 900 left her with an 11th-place finish in the event with a score of 27.
