Snowboard cross is great!

For those of you who were round at our house watching the women's snowboard cross the other day, you already know how great this sport is, but you really should have waited to watch the final!
Essentially, its a great lesson on why, when you're out in front in the Gold medal position, you shouldn't try and impress the crowd, show off, be smug, showboat - basically be American in your victory!
For much to my amusement, on the penultimate jump, a good 30 metres in front of second place, American Lindsey Jacobellis did an unnecessary grab and fell over, handing gold to her more reserved adversary.
You can see more on it on the BBC website - I especially recommend you watch the video highlights the BBC have provided that show the quite eventful race in all its glory! Enjoy!
