Indian luger Shiva Keshavan was involved in an unusual incident ahead of the Opening Ceremonies of the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games.
During a training run ahead of the luge events, Keshavan fell off his sled but managed to get back on again.
India is not officially at the Sochi Games, the nation suspended by the International Olympic Committee after it refused to ban corruption-tainted officials from running for elections. The suspension is expected to be lifted after new elections in the coming days.
Keshavan is one of three Indian athletes at these Games; the other two competing in skiing.
