Even Figure Skaters Get Nosebleeds (During Competition)!

If anyone was watching the figure skating short program for the 2010 Olympics last night (2/23/10), you may have seen American figure skater Mirai Nagasu get a bloody nose halfway through her program.

"Even though I felt the blood come down my nose, I said, 'Don't stop, keep going,' she said, blaming the dry air for her malady. 'I still did the best I could.'"

Read more about this in the NYT here.
