Good news, your rim is fine. The nipple sheared in half. Bet there is a little brass doughnut somewhere near you that used to be the other half. Any bike shop should be able to give you a nipple.

Yikes, I think you should read up on Grant Peterson era Bridgestones. All bikes can do the same thing, how they do it is what makes you choose one over the other.
