Ah. I'd wondered why in some of her recent Instagram pictures, her eyelid/eyebrow is taped up with plaster, that explains it.
Hope they're both okay and can come out fighting next time.
They had a pretty scary accident in practice performing a twist. They crashed head to head, Nicole having the worst of it with her left eyelid cut open. On the way down she hit Matteo's chest with her blade but luckily nothing major happened to him. She was taken to the hospital and got stitches to her eyelid and quite a few tests which luckily did not show further damage. As they said in the interview after the short, it was not easy to practice after that, they had to be cautious as Matteo said "you see there is a scar in the head and you don't want to make it worse". She also admitted she breathed a sigh of relief after they did the twist in the program. It looks like it still played tricks to their mind today in the free... The twist was shaky and after that she looked pretty lost... Hope they can regroup soon and come back stronger for worlds!
