Emily Arthur Injured After Nasty Fall In Halfpipe Final


Australian snowboarder Emily Arthur says she is "looking a bit like shrek" but doing okay after suffering a pretty nasty fall during the ladies' halfpipe final at the Winter Olympics.

Arthur fell midway through her third and final run and smacked her head directly onto the halfpipe.

The groans from the crowd could be heard as it all played out. While the 18-year-old was visibly shaken and had blood coming from her nose and mouth, she was able to get up and walk off the course.

Blood is seen from the nose and mouth of Emily Arthur of Australia after crashing during the Snowboard Ladies' Halfpipe Final on day four of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games at Phoenix Snow Park on February 13, 2018,

After the competition, Emily Arthur tweeted that she was doing okay and just had "a very swollen nose and face" but was happy none the less.

She also explained that despite what Wikipedia might've said at the time, she "didn't actually lose any teeth" during the fall.
