It looked brutal but Australian moguls skier Nicole Parks has managed to walk away with just a pair of broken sports glasses after a spectacular crash in training for the Sochi Winter Olympics.
Parks landed heavily on a jump feature towards the end of the session on Tuesday night but the 21-year-old insisted the result was a lot tamer than it actually looked.
"I just landed a bit forward and caught an edge that was a bit soft. One ski went one way and I rolled over," she said.
"Everyone does that at least once in training.
"I broke my lenses but I have plenty of them. I came prepared."
It was an otherwise worry-free evening for the Australians with even Dale Begg-Smith getting in some turns and jumps on the course.
The 29-year-old had reportedly lost his bags at the airport before being secreted away from media late on Monday night but clearly his ski gear had turned up before the first training session commenced.
Another bonus for Begg-Smith could be the course itself.
The two-time Winter Olympic medallist had said in an earlier press conference that the jumps seem to be mostly what judges considered these days despite the fact turns - his signature component - made up 50 per cent of the actual scoring.
First viewing revealed the jumps to be on the smaller side, perhaps taking away some of the advantage of the favourites, defending Games champion Alex Bilodeau and Canadian compatriot Mikael Kingsbury, who produce more technical tricks than their former countryman.
Begg-Smith still competes in the two-jump combination that won him silver at the 2010 Games.
"The only thing is that the jumps are a bit small," Bilodeau said after training.
I broke my lenses but I have plenty of them. I came prepared.
"That takes out a bit of the show, but it's going to be our job to make the show instead, to work harder."
Another Australian, Taylah O'Neill, said she enjoyed the course.
"After the first few days it has got a lot of snow so now I've picked up speed and I feel more confident. I like these kind of conditions," she said.
The qualifying round of the women's moguls is scheduled for Thursday, one day before the opening ceremony. The finals will be held Saturday.
In the men's moguls, the qualifying and final rounds will all be held on Monday.
