Miss Florida, aka Myrrhanda Jones, has surprised the judges as she walked down the runway wearing a bedazzled leg brace in the swimsuit competition for the Miss America 2014 Pageant.
Unfortunately, Miss Florida injured her knee during rehearsal in the final practice before Thursday’s preliminary competition.

According to Gainesville.com, she tore her anterior and medial collateral ligaments.
Miss Florida made it through to the talent competition as well where she carried out a very active baton-twirling routine. It’s amazing she was able to do the strenuous act given her serious injury. Bravo!
