I am shocked to hear this news this morning. Our beautiful 2010 World Beam Champion has announced her retirement from the sport of gymnastics, just aged 18 years old. Ana had a tough year this year, not making the beam finals at Worlds must have been the final moment for her before confirming her decision to retire as well as an unfortunate series of injuries.
Many fans will be shocked and saddened by this news. You can read the Google Translated version of the Pro Sport article here. We will await official confirmation from the Romanian Gymnastics Federation.
