Fronting It

Sara Kjellin, Swedish Olympian in the ladies moguls event, completes the first frontflip ever in Olympic competition for ladies moguls. A very difficult maneuver, it requires the athlete to throw all weight over the skis, a nifty little tuck right after being catapulted into the air at a somewhat backward angle.

Kjellin placed 4th overall, but was the only athlete present to attempt the frontflip.
