What the hell! Hope she recovers but... if there was something who could put his career in jeopardy is an injury like this, given her age also.

It was an upper tibia fracture. She did say she wants to come back but it will be harder now. Especially with the new quad. IMO I think they are hiding a acl tear.

I've obviously missed something, what did she say?

I feel better knowing I'm not the only person who dislikes her

Oh yeah we mentioned the race stuff before, but I saw in that other link you posted something about saying stuff to Jordyn Wieber.

It doesn't surprise me at all that the racism claims would be fake

Not something I would have said.

Why is she talking about "showdown"? They're supposed to be teammates. I'm sure Komova and Mustafina never thought about each other like that

There's been rumors of a kind of rift between Gabby and the other 4 four. She had her own room in london. FYI
