Skier McRae Williams dislocated his shoulder mid-run and popped it back in

American freestyle skier McRae Williams failed to medal in his competition on Sunday, but it certainly was not due to a lack of effort.

Williams told USA Today’s Rachel Axon that he dislocated his shoulder mid-run in the men’s slopestyle event and popped it back in as he was still going.

The 27-year-old Williams did not ultimately qualify for the final though and finished 15th with a time of 81.60. As hinted at above, he has also had his fair share of injuries to fight through dating back to last year’s Winter X Games.

Dislocating your shoulder and casually popping it back in mid-race is definitely no joke though, and Williams now becomes at least the second Olympic athlete that we have seen power past a gnarly injury in PyeongChang.
