Brazilian Women's Bobsled Crash

This Women's Bobsled Crash Shows Just How Crazy the Sport Is

Now this is a miracle on ice. After getting serious air, the Brazilian women's bobsled team avoided serious injury. The frightening crash came on Sunday, and the two Olympians, Fabiana Santos and Sally da Silva, spent the last 20 seconds of the run turned over. Until 2002, only men could enter the bobsled competition, and the women's teams compete with two people instead of four. This year's Team USA women's bobsled team features two Summer Olympians: Lauren Williams, a gold medalist sprinter, and hurdler Lolo Jones. Right now, ahead of Wednesday's finals, the Americans lead. The Brazilian team is in 18th place, back more than five seconds from first. See a slow-motion replay of their crash below, and watch the whole run on NBC.
