The first day of practice went down last night on the Jon Olsson Invitational jump in Åre, Sweden, and based on what took place, it's safe to say that the madness has officially begun.
During the session, Russ Henshaw landed the second ever triple cork 14, McRae Williams became the second skier to throw a switch triple rodeo 12, and Klaus Finne attempted a triple cork 18.
