Scotty James and Britt Cox both have some bumps to get over in the first official day of Winter Olympics competition in Sochi.
Snowboarder James took a hit to the groin in pre-Games qualifying for the slopestyle event, missing out on direct entry to the final after finishing 11th in his heat on Thursday.
"Took a spill in slopestyle qualifiers yesterday and unfortunately gave the family jewels and the ribs a good wack but healing up and getting ready for semi-finals tomorrow!#ManPartProblems," he wrote on his Instagram account.
With eight riders already through to the final he'll need to finish in the top four to progress to the afternoon decider.
While a medal would be a stretch for the 19 year-old a finals spot should be well in reach with a clean run.
James finished ninth at his past two World Cup events in the discipline as well as qualifying for one of those events in first place from his heat.
Cox's bumps are far more literal - the two-time Olympian considered the best of the Australians competing in the women's moguls on Saturday night.
The Victorian, 19, just missed out on direct entry to the first final phase when she finished 12th in a Thursday night qualifier.
Ten skiers went through to the next phase; another ten joining them from the second round of qualifying before they are whittled down to 12 and then six from which the medallists are ultimately decided.
Cox is a World Cup medallist and would be at least eyeing off a finish in the last 12, if not a shot on the podium by being part of the last six skiers.
She'll be joined by teammates Taylah O'Neill and Nicole Parks.
Meanwhile Alex Ferlazzo, one of Australia's most unlikely Winter Olympians, is scheduled for his first two runs in the luge.
From Townsville, the 18 year-old thought it was a sport that he might like when he first heard about it four years ago.
He started riding wheeled sleds in Queensland and at a recruitment drive for the sport in Sydney before progressing to the real thing within a year.
Ferlazzo represented Australia at the 2012 Winter Youth Olympic Games in Innsbruck, Austria, where he finished 19th and was 15th out of 41 at the junior world championships in Igls.
Vancouver Winter Olympian Alex Almoukov will compete in the biathlon 10km sprint.
