Gimnasta se lesiona las piernas en plena competencia

La gimnasta estadounidense, Samantha Cerio, estaba compitiendo en Auburn cuando produjo la lesión trágica.

Sucedió durante un evento regional de la NCAA en Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

De acuerdo con ABC.net, cuando Cerio intentó un doble salto frontal, aterrizó en un ángulo incómodo y sus piernas se doblaron hacia atrás.

Luego, se desplomó en el suelo, y la multitud se quedó atónita y en silencio cuando la gimnasta, visiblemente perturbada se agarró las rodillas en un agónico momento.

La gimnasta será intervenida por esguinces y fuertes lesiones en los ligamentos, en su cuenta de Instagram se despidió de esta disciplima.

Friday night was my final night as a gymnast. After 18 years I am hanging up my grips and leaving the chalk behind. I couldn’t be prouder of the person that gymnastics has made me to become. It’s taught me hard work, humility, integrity, and dedication, just to name a few. It’s given me challenges and road blocks that I would have never imagined that has tested who I am as a person. It may not have ended the way I had planned, but nothing ever goes as planned. Thank you Auburn family for giving me a home and a chance to continue doing the sport that will always be my first love. I am honored to have had the privilege to represent the navy and orange AU for the past 4 years with my team by my side. Thank you for letting me share my passion with you. Thank you for letting me be a part of something bigger than myself. War Eagle Always 💙🧡
