    Snatching Defeat from the Jaws of Victory!
    02/17/2006 2:09PM
    Lindsey Jacobellis, crashes while hot-dogging a jump in the women's snowboard cross Olympic final.  Evidently, she was way ahead and did some sort of trick on one of the final jumps causing her to crash.  She wasn't able to recover and get back up to speed in time and ended up taking Silver.

    A good example of how being too cocky can come back to bite you, hard!
