On October 12, 2010 Ananth Rao was competing in a State competition in India on Floor. He under rotated a 1 3/4 forward salto roll out. And will now spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair.
In the draft version of the next Men’s Code of Points roll out skills on Floor are banned. They’ve been banned in the Women’s Code for decades after 1978 World Champion Elena Mukhina was paralyzed.
Congratulations FIG MTC for that decision. Our sport will have far fewer concussions and catastrophic injuries in future.
