US gymnast breaks both legs while competing

Star gymnast known as Samantha Cerio broke her legs and dislocated her knees during her floor routine at the NCAA competition. She was attempting a handspring double front on her first tumbling pass when she landed awkwardly and suffered the gruesome injury.

She was a gymnast at the Auburn University. Trainers and medical staff attended to her for almost 10 minutes before she was taken off in a stretcher and carried to the hospital. She made a post on IG on Sunday which says

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.
