This was from the X-Games last night and I remember seeing it before I went to bed and I was absolutely shocked. It's Jake Brown who is apparently an Aussie performing a backside 720 in the Big Air Skate before he fell a long long way. It's pretty scary and the thud is sickening but it is still amazing.

The first time I saw it I thought he had actually died, I didn't see how anyone could be okay after that. And he walked away. How? After falling like 40 some feet. Dude is seriously a bad ass. But the ultimate kicker is that he didn't win; he came in second (to Bob Burnquist)! Though I guess you really can't be pissed about not winning after you survived that.
