China takes action after skater's brutal blunder at Winter Olympics

Chinese censors appeared to step in on Sunday when online trolls mercilessly attacked a US-born figure skater who took a tumble at the Beijing Games. 19-year-old Beverly Zhu, who was born and raised in the United States but now competes for China under the name Zhu Yi, came last in the women's singles short program in the team event in Beijing. In a very nervy performance, Zhu fell early in her routine and looked to be holding back tears as she awaited her score.

China fell from third to fifth after Zhu's blunder, but narrowly squeezed through to the free program.
