British skier Rowan Cheshire fell during a training run for the Olympic ski halfpipe competition and was taken to the hospital for overnight evaluation. The 18-year-old took the brunt of the crash on her face and head, sustaining a concussion.

Cheshire took a selfie — as one does after a horrible crash — reminding everyone everywhere to wear a helmet when you launch your body 20 feet into the air.

The British Olympic Association released a statement following Cheshire’s accident.

“After examination by Team GB medical personnel it is confirmed that she has a concussion and, as a precaution, will stay at a local hospital overnight for further evaluation.

The women’s ski halfpipe competition is Thursday and while it is still unclear if Cheshire will be healthy enough to compete, her photo game is still very strong.
