American gymnast Samantha Cerio has undergone surgery on both broken legs after sustaining a horrible, career-ending injury just two months before her wedding.
The 22-year-old was competing at a National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Baton Rouge Regional event (Louisiana) on Friday, when her floor routine ended in a terrifying fall.
Cerio who represents Auburn University was making her first tumbling pass when she failed to nail a blind landing resulting in a double leg fracture and double knee dislocation. The injury ended Cerios sporting career, with the gymnast announcing her retirement right after the accident.
On Monday, the gymnast underwent surgery on both legs and she hopes to fully recover before her wedding in June when she will marry her fiance Trey Wood.
