The 18-year-old struggled with a 48.25 score in her first run before a fall resulted in the judges awarding her 9.25 in her second run.

Then as she looked to bounce back, Arthur face-planted into the snow with a nasty stack in her final run, forcing her out of the race for a medal.

Still stunned as she walked off the half-pipe, Arthur was seen with blood dripping from her nose as doctors came to her attention.

What a fighter 💪 @Emily__Arthur #AUS gave her all in that final run... the personification of the #Olympics spirit.

Arthur told Channel Seven reporters at the venue she was felt some pain after the fall.

"I'm good and I'm alive," Arthur said.

"Got a real swollen left eye when I look around, but I'm fine, I'm happy just being here."

Arthur gave it all in her final run as she desperately pushed for a podium position.

"I really went for it in my last run, I think I definitely could have moved up a bit (in the rankings)," she said.

Favourite for the gold medal, America's Chloe Kim finished on top with a final run score of 98.25 with China's Liu Jiayu second and American Ariel Gold round out the podium.
