With the world’s eye on the stellar event, Victoria’s Secret Show, and the weighty expectations of an adoring home crowd, it is an understatement to say the pressure is immense. Many witnessed the slip and fall of one of the angels, Shanghai native, Ming Xi (full name: Xi Mengyao).In her response, Ming stated: “I’m so sorry to let everyone down, thank you everyone for your concern. As a model for seven years, I’ve fallen down on the road countless times along the way… but I know no matter how painful it is, I have to stand up again and finish walking… The future road is very long and I will continue to follow it… Thank you.”Ming, you did not let anyone down. While some lament the fall of an angel, we give credo and respect to you for your courage to spring upon your feet and walk on down the runway.Although ankle sprain is an extremely common sports injury, and is often under-estimated or poorly treated. It is estimated that some 30% of the individuals will develop chronic ankle instability following their first episode of ankle sprain.Therefore, appropriate and timely care is essential for trauma and sports injuries. From an accurate initial evaluation, bracing (see photo), muscle strengthening, kinetic chain training (moving limbs in alignment), and proprioceptive training (position awareness and reaction speed), each plays an important role in ensuring an optimal outcome, for athletes and fashionistas alike.
