Whenever you first tune into a gymnastics broadcast, you are often struck with, wait, what happened to so and so. So here are some girls you might be missing from Nationals.
We have anticipated Katelyn’s performances as a senior for so many years now, it is sad to be deprived of her gymnastics beauty. After the American Cup she had surgery on her back. Though it was thought at the time she would return quickly, she still has not made it back to the elite gymnastics scene.
Another big name in the junior ranks, the current Junior National Champion will have to miss out on trying to earn back to back National Championship titles. A strained achilles is preventing her from competing.
Madison sprained her ankle in her third pass on her floor routine, her third event. She had a phenomenal beam and bars routines before the sprain that has taken her out of the rest of the competition.
Sabrina was a part of the 2011 World Championship gold medal team and barely missed making the 2012 Olympic team. Devastated by the news, she quickly stated she would be returning to training. However injury has kept her out of the elite scene this year.
Known for her incredible beam and floor routines, her poise and beautiful dance, it was hoped that 2013 would be Sarah’s year after making the 2012 team as an alternate. However, Sarah too has been missing from the elite scene all year due to injury.
All of these girls are incredible gymnasts. The first three especially may still make quite a splash this year if they are able to get healthy in time for the world championship selection camp.
