McKenna breaks her ankle at the presentation run. We do not see the ankle breaking, but we do see McKenna's expression to the pain.

Near the end, McKenna's friend tells her that she just threw up in the bathroom due to the stress of the competition. The vomiting is off screen and unheard in the movie.

Josie faces ableism from her peers because she uses a wheelchair. Even McKenna is a little unsure about Josie being her tutor at first. The two later become close friends.
