Brazil’s two-woman bobsled team took flight in Sochi during a training run on Monday.

This screen grab of pilot Fabiana Santos and brakewoman Sally Mayara da Silvais is pretty remarkable as it shows the pair briefly leaving the track before Santos’ head slams into the wall.

Unsurprisingly, Brazil’s women sit 18th after two heats, just over five seconds off the pace — and one spot ahead of the last-place Koreans.

Hat tip to the South Americans for lugging a sled all the way to Eastern Europe.
