That's nuts! Snowboarder narrowly dodges squirrel during women's parallel giant slalom


Some of the athletes competing in PyeongChang at the 2018 Winter Olympics train their whole lives for a shot at the gold medal.

That shot could just be a few seconds down a mountain course or track, and all it takes is one minor fault, or one squirrel, to ruin everything.

Fortunately, that didn't happen for Austria's Daniela Ulbing.

Ulbing's smooth moves on her board allowed her to narrowly miss hitting a squirrel that ran out onto the course during the women's parallel giant slalom.

She even won her race.

Now those are some mad skills!
