The Vancouver 2010 games have given us great thrills but also some gut-wrenching spills.  From failed attempts at redemption to overcoming personal loses and narrowly missing gold, a pictorial look at these winter games:

 

Lindsey Jacobellis had the gold in hand in Torino when a little showboating left her crashing with silver.  This time around, she wasn’t even in medal contention after being disqualified.
