The C Score (2.0)

Injury report: Bross, Deng, Tweddle, Zgoba

Posted on: December 4, 2008

No update on Anna Pavlova just now, but some news on Rebecca Bross, Deng Linlin, Beth Tweddle and Dariya Zgoba, who are all injured.

Rebecca Bross:

I have finally confirmed for myself the long-circulating rumor that Bross’s injury at the most recent training camp was not minor, as originally suggested, but actually a fairly serious injury that could have her out for all of next season. Also, as I understand it, it was not to the leg that has caused her trouble in the past, but was an acute trauma to her knee on her good leg. Too bad, especially since a lot of people were expecting a big senior debut at the American Cup.

ETA: I’ve since heard that the surgery was to remove a bone chip, but I can’t confirm that.

Deng Linlin:

Deng Linlin apparently had fairly serious surgery and will not be participating in any competitions for the rest of the year.

Beth Tweddle:

Tweddle recently had a shoulder operation according to British Gymnastics (see here), explaining her absence on the WCF roster.

Dariya Zgoba:

Slightly more interestingly, Zgoba had to scratch at the Glasgow Grand Prix and the DTB Cup because of an injury, and then was scheduled to have surgery. Either she had it in October and is sufficiently healed to participate in the WCF, or she has postponed it.

So sad:(
I loved all those gymnasts!
Espically Dariya Zgoba she’s one of my favorite, and she’s does such beautiful gymnastics. She reminds me a but of Svetlana Boginskaya.

well, that just sucks. especially about bross because i am going to the american cup this year and would have loved to see her as a senior! i saw her at nationals, but a senior debut would have been exciting.
i hope they all recover quickly. maybe we should move everyone to chow’s, since shawn johnson seems to never get injured!

Bross makes me so, so, so, so sad.

I was looking so forward to what she was going to bring to the American Cup.

About The C Score

First there was A score and B score, now D score and E score. Where is the C score? Right here. In the form of my random thoughts about women's artistic gymnastics.
