Elisa Hämmerle – Seven Nation Army

Lauren Hopkins posted an interview with Elisa that would inspire any injured gymnast:

“It’s Always Worth Trying One More Time”

Elisa ruptured her Achilles during the Olympic Test Event Rio. Her chance to qualify for the 2016 Olympics gone.

But in February 2017, she decided to go back to the Gym to see if a 2020 Olympic spot might be possible. The return to Floor and Vault was slow because of pain in the other Achilles. That’s not uncommon.

In early 2019 Elisa moved to Netherlands to train with Patrick and Daymon and the many other top gymnasts at their club.

Elisa did qualify for the 2020 Olympics in the AA for Austria as did her PAX teammate Mandy Mohamed for Egypt.
