Bridget Sloan Out With A Severely Injured Ankle

While UCLA had Christine "Peng Peng" Lee, return to competition after dealing with an injury, on the east coast, Florida lost an athlete (temporarily) to an injury.

Former World and NCAA all-around national champion, Bridget Sloan injured her ankle in the season opener against Ball State.
According to Gymnastike, Bridget scored a perfect 10 on her first event, vault, but injured her ankle on a double pike tumbling and had to be helped off the floor by a trainer and didn't compete on beam.

Today, Florida head coach, Rhonda Faehn, confirmed Bridget's injury via her Twitter account.

Bridget was named SEC specialist of the week for her perfect 10 on vault.

Here's wishing Bridget a speedy recovery.

Katelyn Ohashi Sets the Rumors Straight

American Cup winner Katelyn Ohashi has been out of competition for a while due to injuries.

Since she won the American Cup in March, she's been largely absent from the USA Gymnastics scene. In April, she turned down international assignments at the City of Jesolo Cup because she was recovering from shoulder surgery. She was absent from the national championships in August, presumably for the same reason.
