In it they will record what percentage of athletes left the competition due to injury.

Gymnasts were injured on day 1, including one of the H Bar favourites ➙ Tyson Bull. A lower back injury on H Bar.

Kamila Valieva – Olympic quads

Amazing. She twists so quickly.

I’m so sorry this historic accomplishment is being overshadowed by why her coach, Eteri Tutberidze, couldn’t prevent Kamila from taking a prohibited substance.
