Candice Didier, the Frenchwoman who took a hard fall on a triple toeloop jump and crashed into the Staples Center boards, suffered a bruised hip but will be released shortly from a medical clinic and is supposed to make a full recovery.

Didier took a three-minute injury timeout after her fall and was able to finish her long program.
