Fortunately, this list hasn't grown much since the last posting. The end point on this list is return to competition but many of the gymnasts have "returned" in some capacity. Biles has attended the last 2 training camps. It sounds like both McKayla Maroney (USA) and Carlotta Ferlito (ITA) have returned to the gym from their respective training restrictions. Dutch gymnast Chantysha Netteb has also returned and German junior Kim Janas has recently posted video of her comeback as well! Also exciting is that Tyesha Mattis and Gabrielle Jupp have returned to Team GB training camps! Ana Lago has returned to competition since her ACL surgery on the uneven bars and continues to work hard on upgrades.

I decided not to include MAG because I don't follow closely enough to stay on top of each injury. If you want to help out, let me know!

As always, please share any other updates as well! If you know what happened to Tyesha Mattis or Loan His or the name of the gymnast that got injured at Euros, let me know!


  1. Laura Gamell injured on FX TQ warm up Euros. She returned at the Spanish Nationals.

    1. Do you remember what her injury was?
