Gymnastics Injuries Jul-Sept

I wasn't sure what to highlight in this quarterly post and I looked at the list. The one that made me a little sad for this year's international season and for the lead up to the Rio Games. Brazilian first year senior Rebeca Andrade tore her ACL while preparing for the Pan American Games. Andrade has one of the more beautiful blocks on vault with a nice high Amanar to rival the Americans. Unfortunately, she'll be out for about a year with this injury so we will be hopeful that Brazil qualifies a team without her and she can make that team in 2016. Aussie veteran Lauren Mitchell was set to compete at the Universaide Games and also suffered an ACL injury. Mitchell has dealt with numerous injuries throughout her career so we'll have to wait and see if she wants to compete after this one.

There have been a few comebacks. Speaking of ACLs, Spain's Maria Paula Vargas is back now! She has been out for a long time with injury so it's great to see her back again especially as we wait for teammate Roxana Popa to come back from her injury. Jade Barbosa finally made it back from her injury as well but withdrew from the Pan American Games to allow herself more time to heal. Aliya Mustafina is back after an almost six month hiatus for a back injury and proved that she still has quite a hold on Europe and the world after a successful European Games.

Note about the list:
The list consists of national team members that have had some injury that keeps them out of competition. (c) indicates gymnasts that have returned to national team camp or control competition but not yet to a "public" competition.
