…about the revelations this IG interview with rebecca bross holds:
Initially diagnosed as a stress reaction prior to worlds, the hot spot on Bross’ ankle developed into a stress fracture. On Tuesday, Bross underwent surgery, in which doctors inserted two screws into the bone to ensure the fracture heals properly.
IG stopped by WOGA in Plano, Texas, to chat with Bross a few days before her ankle surgery. The injury limited Bross to mainly uneven bars and conditioning, while her training partners in Liukin’s group showed off some impressive new skills for the upcoming season. Grace McLaughlin, a senior next year, threw a beautiful Jaeger-half on uneven bars, while Katelyn Ohashi, a senior in 2013, tumbled a 2 1/2, Rudi combination on floor. Nastia Liukin — who only recently returned to training full-time as she tests the waters for a comeback — looked outstanding, and caught a new layout Jaeger from elgrip. Two-time world team member Ivana Hong, who also trains under Liukin and Kamalova, looked physically fit after a torn ACL in February.
1.) so she was competing on a broken ankle in rotterdam (or broke it while in the process of competing there). that’s two broken ankles at major events in three years! go marta, 2-for-3!
2.) katelyn ohashi is somethin’ else.
3.) a layout jaeger is cool. what exactly does “outstanding” mean?
