Diana Bulimar is Injured

The list of World Championship athletes who are injured/sick keeps getting longer.

The Couch Gymnast reported that Diana Bulimar injured her left knee right before the start of the Romanian Nationals.
There is not much else really known about the condition other than she had an injury on the same knee three years ago. Octavian Bellu, the Romanian head coach flew with  Diana to Viena, Austria for an emergency surgery.

Word is that she will not be able to compete or train for six weeks. So now she is officially sitting out this year's world championships. Her partner in crime/best friend, Larisa Iordache will be competing without her. It seems with all the injuries and illnesses (Cough, Komova) that keep happening, the pool of gymnasts for countries to choose from is getting smaller. Romania found themselves particularly depleted of talent after the Olympics in London last year, so it's going to be hard for them to find a replacement. But since the Romanian Nationals are this weekend, maybe a hot new star will present herself and be put on the team in Diana's place.

Here's wishing Diana a speedy recovery.
