Holy shizz!!

We knew that figure skating was a physical sport, we just had no idea how truly dangerous it was! It gives us a whole new outlook!

Team USA's Evan Lysacek says he's had 15-20 concussions because of it — and that means at LEAST 15!!

He even says the sport should consider making helmets mandatory, which would be awkward for those who put a LOT of effort into their wardrobe… but we bet they'd get used to it quickly!

Here's what he said:

"I've seen some gnarly falls like where a girl gets dropped out of mid-air and just like their teeth pop out … and split chins, split cheek … crazy stuff. You know sometimes we fall at 20 miles an hour. Your neck just kinda snaps back."

Head injuries are a huge problems in sports, especially football! There are even ongoing lawsuits because of it.

We just want everyone to stay safe, while still performing the best they can!

Plus knowing this makes the sport a little bit more exciting — even if it already was!!
