X Games Snowboarder Halldor Helgason was attempting a triple backflip when he over-rotated. The result? A tremendous face plant on the landing. The Ski Patrol brought in the backboard and sent Helgason on a sled ride to the hospital for a precautionary CT Scan and MRI. Reports are Helgason suffered a concussion on Friday night during the finals of the America’s Navy Snowboard Big Air competition at X Games Aspen.
Helgason, who is 22, won the gold in Big Air in 2010 and is the only Icelandic athlete to medal in the Winter X Games.
