How do you say, "Get out the way!" in Austrian? Actually, how do you say, "Get out the way!" in squirrel? Either way, it was a close call between skier and rodent at the 2018 Winter Olympics.
Austrian snowboarder Daniela Ulbing showed some mad maneuvers when she dodged a squirrel during the Olympic slalom course. The squirrel wasn't too shabby either. He or she (it's hard to tell on camera) skidded to a stop, did an impressive 180-degree flip, and dashed away in the direction it came from. Ulbing not only avoided turning the furry creature into roadkill, she went on to win the gold. The squirrel didn't get a medal, but it did live to see another day.
People were growing suspicious that something sinister was going on.
Others could only imagine the look on the squirrel's face:
And what Ulbing was thinking...
Maybe the squirrel had just jetted in for the games and was all, "I'm outtie!"
