It was reported that South Korean professional figure skater Lim Eun Soo (16) was injured during official rehearsal for the 'ISU World Championships - Women's Short Program'. According to sources, Lim Eun Soo was close to the edge of the rink when American professional figure skater Mariah Bell (22) allegedly kicked and stabbed Lim's left calf with her skate blades. Lim's management All That Sports had to leave rehearsal due to severe pain and was treated immediately from the medical staff. 

A representative of All That Sports said, "Lim Eun Soo was skating close to the edge as much as possible to not interfere with other skaters. It seems it was intentional, considering how Bell came from behind."

A representative from Spot TV added, "In the past, we believed we should just ignore it but it got severely bad as the championships approached," and said, "It wouldn't have been this bad if she apologized for once." 

Despite her injury, Lim desires to continue the competition. At the championship on March 20, Lim ranked #5 with a score of 72.91, while Bell ranked right behind at #6 with 71.26. 
Netizens have showed support for Lim Eun Soo, while rushing to Bell's Instagram to leave criticism for her behavior. Comments read, "Shame on you," "Skate blade is not for cutting another player's leg cowardly. Live honestly," " I am really disappointed with your terror for Eunsoo. Your attitude is not that of an athlete but racism."
