McMorris tells fans he is on the mend after “freak accident”
After suffering a terrible crash at Air + Style Los Angeles on Sunday, Olympic snowboarder Mark McMorris has posted on Instagram to inform fans that he is on the mend.
Since winning Olympic bronze in the debut of snowboard slopestyle at Sochi 2014 with a cracked rib, McMorris has continued to innovate his signature disciplines, raising the bar in a sport that demands new tricks virtually every time riders head out in front of expectant crowds.
