Charlotte Mackie

Triple Twist:

… She was innovative and unique; a crowd pleaser and yet she wasn’t able to realize her dream of making it to the Olympics. (Despite being one of Canada’s top gymnasts for many years)

What injury did she have? I thought she quit because she changed gyms.

She seriously injured her foot on vault at Elite Canada 2010, the last event for her in finals. It required surgery with pins, screws, and plates with a very long recovery. It was basically a career ending injury, although she tried to recover, it was not possible to continue with the sport.
