Lindsay Jacobellis will have to wait another four years for redemption.
The Connecticut rider came in second at the 2006 Games, losing a sizable lead when she fell while doing a trick toward the end of the course.
Jacobellis settled for silver in 2006 and entered the 2010 Games hoping to prove herself and take home the gold for Team USA -- but again, she fell short of her dream.
The American rider lost her balance on a jump, then clipped a gate in the semifinal race on the SBX course Tuesday, disqualifying herself from contention. Jacobellis stunned the crowd, who expected the rider -- dominant in world competition for years -- to, at the very least, qualify for the medal round.
