During a frightening fall in the men's snowboard cross quarterfinals on Thursday at the PyeongChang Olympics, Schairer broke the fifth cervical vertebra in his neck when he landed with full force on the snow, snapping his head backwards violently. He was able to get to his feet before being taken for a medical exam.
The footage below shows how much of an impact the fall had on his back and neck.
Schairer, 30, fractured his fifth cervical vertebrae but remained in stable condition without permanent damage, the committee said in a statement, according to NBC News. While the injury sounded disgusting, the Austrian Olympic Committee said after the examination that Schairer was in stable condition and had suffered no neurological issues. "In addition, the Vorarlberger pulled an elbow injury". The committee announced he will be transported back to Austria "as soon as possible".
Schairer was in fourth place at the time of the crash. The Express claim that he is expected to return to Austria imminently to receive further treatment.

Obamas Unveil Official Portraits, Reveal Lasting Legacy
I appreciate artistic freedoms, but I feel these portraits need to be more representative of the subjects being painted. We should also condemn the Obamas' commissioning of such an individual to paint their official portraits.
