Video: Russian Skater Yulia Lipnitskaya Takes A Tumble During Routine

Russia's "tiny genius" added to the country's disappointing day by falling during one of her Olympic routines. At the age of 15, Yulia Lipnitskaya is Russia's pride and joy when it comes to figure skating, but her fall during an impressive triple flip didn't go unnoticed by judges. Still, she finished the round with a 65.23 and currently sits in 5th behind her 2nd place Russian teammate Adelina Sotnikova.


If you want to see her impressive skills both before and after the tragic tumble, here is the full video of Lipnitskaya's performance.
