Ski jumping is a pretty crazy sport. To someone who has never done it and most certainly never will, it seems to involve flying off a ramp, leaning forward, and praying you don’t die. This video from the 80s shows the horrible crashes that occur when your prayers aren’t answer. Even the jumpers who landed safely seem to have panic filled moments in the air, flailing about in one last attempt to not die. An Imgur user was also kind enough to create animated GIFs out of some of the best bits of the video.
