A day after her scary crash on the snowboard course, the Czech Republic's Sarka Pancochova reassured fans that she's "all good." Pancochova, 23, took an ugly tumble Sunday during the women's slopestyle finals. She missed her landing and broke her helmet on impact.

There was likely a "gasp" from TV viewers who saw the crash during NBC's Sunday night TV coverage. Fear not, Pancochova woke up the next morning and posted her broken helmet on Instagram along with a message that told us she was OK — and she had a sense of humor about her fall.

I guess I hit my head yesterday. Haha. Haven't gone down like this in a long time. But I'm all good that's everyone for they kind words.

(We assume she means "thanks" there toward the end).

Pancochova could have been a lot more heartbroken, considering she was in the lead after her first run. She finished the event in fifth place. Team USA’s Jamie Anderson eventually won the gold. Even before Pancochova's crash, the safety of the slopestyle course had been a big talking point at the Sochi Games.
