SOCHI, Russia, Feb. 18 (UPI) -- British skier Rowan Cheshire tweeted a selfie of her battered face after suffering a hard fall during a training run on the halfpipe.

Cheshire, 18, took a nasty fall on the halfpipe during a training run Sunday and was knocked unconscious. The official Twitter account of British Ski & Snowboard later announced that she suffered a concussion and would be staying in the hospital overnight.

On Monday, Cheshire tweeted a photo of her bloody face saying she didn't remember much but was appreciative of all the messages of support.


She also tweeted much happier pictures of the gifts she had been receiving, and her friend and fellow British skier Katie Summerhayes tweeted a photo of her visiting Cheshire with skier Chemmy Alcott. Summerhayes also posted a photo of Cheshire as her breakfast "date" on Tuesday morning.
