So could the injury have been prevented? That's what the Australian Olympic committee would like to know.

Australian chef de mission Ian Chesterman will urge Australia's Ski and Snowboard Association to make enquiries to the international body in light of the accident.

"There's no set speed that if the wind hits, an event is cancelled," the spokeswoman said.

"There are jury personnel all around the course and they take a number of factors into consideration. Athlete safety is always of paramount concern."
