Sometimes you go out on top, and sometimes you don’t. This past Sunday, Nastia Liukin went out in the worst way imaginable – with a very, very painful faceplant.
Liukin, a U.S. Olympic gymnast who finished as the individual all-around gold medalist back in 2008, wound up wrapping up her career with a 10th place finish at this weekend’s Olympic trials.

According to USA Today, Liukin plans to attend NYU in January.
