Renegade squirrel narrowly avoids death by snowboard at the OlympicsOn February 24, 2018 by Lucius
A squirrel with a death wish was nearly run over during the parallel giant slalom at the 2018 Winter Olympics on Saturday.
Austrian snowboarder Daniela Ulbing was in the middle of her run when a squirrel suddenly ran onto the slope just inches in front of her snowboard.
In typical squirrel fashion, the rodent came face-to-face with the moment of impact before deciding the slalom course was a bad place to be. It turned around only after nearly colliding with Ulbing.
Though the moment was quick, it does appear that Ulbing spotted the squirrel, and possibly adjusted her path to avoid a collision. The world thanks you, Ulbing.
