Gymnast from Auburn University broke both legs, doing exercise in the regional semifinals of the National collegiate athletic Association (NCAA), which was held in Louisiana on Friday (April 5).
22-year-old Samantha Kerio has sustained a terrible injury, completing an acrobatic leap. According to doctors, she dislocated my knee and broke both legs. Many called it “the worst injury associated with the sport” that they have ever seen.
The coach of her team Jeff Grubb noted that in all the years of his work he’s never seen anything like it. He claims that the team will miss Kerio, because it was her “heart and soul”.
Sunday, April 7, Kerio wrote on his page on Instagram a heartbreaking post about the end of his career.
“This performance was the last for me, as a gymnast, she said. — It might not end as I planned, but not everything in life turns out the way we want”.
But despite the injury, Kerio continued to cheer for your University.
“Come on, no breaks!” – she wrote in Twitter before the finals. A team of Auburn University took the fourth place in the final on Saturday, April 6.
