Emily Arthur says she's looking 'like shrek' after snowboard halfpipe fall

The U.S. saw two of their favorite snowboarders hit the halfpipe, with 17-year-old Chloe Kim winning gold for Team USA.

PYEONGCHANG, SOUTH KOREA - 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. 

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.
