Here's how 18-year-old Rowan Cheshire looks after crashing on Sochi halfpipe

The Team GB athlete tweeted this image from her hospital bed this morning.

FREESTYLE SKIER ROWAN Cheshire of Great Britain ended up in the hospital yesterday after suffering a nasty crash during a practice run.

According to The Telegraph, the 18-year-old Cheshire, sustained a concussion when she fell on the halfpipe and was believed to be unconscious for several minutes.

The crash comes on the same halfpipe that snowboarders called “dangerous,” “crappy,” and “garbage.” The combination of the supposed subpar halfpipe and the warm weather makes for a dangerous situation.

According to a statement from Team GB, Cheshire will remain in the hospital for more evaluations before her status for Thursday’s ski halfpipe is determined.

We’re sure Cheshire will be back to her old self in no time.
