Jeremy Abbott Handles His Olympic Fall With Amazing Grace

We all know the cliché: if you fall, get up and try again. On Thursday night, Team USA figure skater Jeremy Abbott had to bring it to life after seriously falling during the short program. Spectators are used to seeing a slip up, but Jeremy's stumble was harder than most. He finished his program, and afterward Jeremy found a silver lining, saying: "I think my personal story has always been about perseverance." He continued, "I'm not an Olympic champion, but maybe I can teach the world that." Watch a replay of the major misstep and how he handled it with inspiring poise now.
