There’s a thread on College Gymnastics Board discussing the high rate of this very serious injury amongst College girls.
An unofficial and probably partial list includes:
Kennedy Finister, Auburn
Nicole Pearson, Pittsburgh
Jamie Shisler, Florida
Maggie Dunn, Ohio State
Samantha Santos, Ball State
Serena Leong, California
Zoey Schaefer, Washington
Allie Flores, Arizona
Tory Wilson, Utah

Older, more powerful gymnasts are at greatest risk.
The one upside to this injury is that it normally heals extremely well. Marisa Dick (Trinidad & Tobago) is just returning to competition. Her goal is to compete for T&T at Pan Am Games 2015.
Recall that Marisa tore an Achilles at Pan Am Championships 2014.
