    we did an a-frame tossed up from the front and then she was supposed to flip forward and one of the middle flyers let go of her foot to early so she was thrown my way, got her shoulder right in my face and broke my nose. it was so painful, and it was two weeks before nationals, so i had do it with a broken nose, and the doctor said if i got hit again it could be like messed up forever, but it was fine, so i don't look like a retard, haha

    a girl stuck out her hip in a stunt and landed on top of me. i sprained my neck and had to go to the hospital. NOT FUN. it took like 2 months to start anything and another month to be fully into it. it has spasms some times from shock. one of the worst injuries ive gotten

    I currently have a fractured thumb along with a torn ligament (thumb)..believe it or not another girl on my college cheer team has this same injury now too..Mine was done by simply catching the top off from a 2-2-1 pyramid :( We had done the top off SO many times I can't even tell you, I mean it's in our competition routine! It was just a freak accident and my thumb got caught somewhere in the mix and it just sorta flopped and got forced straight down..I honestly didn't think it was broken or anything, but sure enough broken AND torn. I am so glad the trainer ended up making me go get an x-ray ha even though I was like um is that really necessary? Mind you, this was about two weeks prior to our conference comp. I had a cast for 2 weeks got it off so I could compete (just wrapped it) hah and I am a flyer soo yes, that has been an experience :) I now have another cast on for 2 weeks and since the first one I have been wrapping a t shirt around it so I don't take out my bases :) hah works pretty well, trying my best to not let it get the best of me!!

    Lots of prayers to all the injuries listed in this thread!! Stay strong, and don't give up! :)

    All time worst.. Went full ro bhs tuck for my lvl 3 team I doubled on .. And the was a whole in floor at comp.. Broke once in bhs cause I couldn't get around in time.. It felt funny but my teammate told me to keep pushing.. Through ro ro ro tuck(as I was scared for bhs).. And heard a snap.. Stared at my arm.. It looked weird .. But kept pushing .. Through basket and that's when the pain came in.. Then did pyramid .. When I caught her( I'm a backspot) .. My flyer heard and felt a 3 crack... I pushed through the dance .. Wen music stopped I looked up..my wrist was bent not the right way ... My friend( who told me to push) saw it .. That was the only time I cried out of pain .. Broke my wrist in 3 did places.. The last almost all the way through.. Worst part cheersport was around the corner... I got that cast cut off to compete and still have chronic pain in my right wrist...

    hmm. most recent injury? woo. lol um, i bruised my ribs and ripped the cartilage away from my chest bone doing baskets. nice clothes line catch does the trick lol
    and i tore my patellar tendon awhile ago, and i got tendinitis from it, and now my patellar tracking is off and it makes my patellar and femur grind together. it feels lovely.
