SOCHI, Russia (AP) — Halfpipe skier Rowan Cheshire says she doesn't remember much after sustaining a concussion in practice.

The British athlete posted a picture of herself on Twitter with what appeared to be a swollen nose, a cut on the bridge of her nose and blood on her upper lip. She also had apparent bumps and bruises and a bandage on the right side of her forehead.

"Wasn't the best day yesterday, still don't remember much!" Cheshire's tweet said. "Thanks everyone for the lovely messages."

Cheshire stayed at a local hospital overnight as a precaution, a decision made by British team officials.
