90% of 2010 Winter Olympians Did Not Suffer Injuries

As a cup-half-full kind of guy, I’d like to read this story about the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games – 10% of 2010 Winter Olympians Suffered Injuries – as its opposite: 90% made it through weeks of intense training and competition completely unscathed.

There are also some pretty interesting, counterintuitive stats here: While alpine skiing was rated as one of the more injury-prone sports (alongside ice hockey and short track skating), ski jumping and freestyle moguls were amongst the least risky, right down there with curling.

The surprising moral: The safest places to be are on a challenging bump run or flying hundreds of feet through the air.
