Gruesome injury ends gymnast's career
AUBURN, AL - In a gruesome injury that you may not want to watch, a star gymnast breaks both her legs in a competition that ends her career.
Samantha Cerio of Huntsville, North Carolina was attempting a handspring double front with a blind landing on her first tumbling pass when she made the hard landing and fell to the mat. While no official diagnosis of her injuries has been released, the New Orleans Times–Picayune cited sources saying Cerio dislocated both of her knees and broke both of her legs.
Cerio had to be carted out of Friday's NCAA gymnastics regional on a stretcher. In an emotional post to Instagram two days after the incident, Cerio announced her retirement from gymnastics.
