How did someone who hadn’t placed above fourth in any World Cup events this season suddenly vault to the top of the Olympic podium? According to protests from the United States and Canada, it was her helmet.

The U.S. filed two protests and Canada filed one with the International Federation of Bobsleigh and Tobogganing, the governing body that oversees skeleton. The two countries claimed that ridges on Williams’ helmet didn’t conform to aerodynamic standards set by the FIBT.
