Olympic stars to miss European Championships


Reports have surfaced this evening that Olympic medalists Epke Zonderland and Viktoria Komova are due to miss the forth coming European Championships. It has now been confirmed that Komova has been suffering with a back injury which was reported earlier in the month. I’m not quite sure where I saw the story, possible Re-writing Russian Gymnastics but a Russian version is here and here.

High Bar Olympic Gold medalist Epke Zonderland is to miss Europeans along with Celine Van Gerner and Lisa Top according to a link provided by The All Around News. Who will the ladies swoon over in Moscow without Zonderland, Philipp Boy and Louis Smith!?!

The Couch Gymnast is now reporting that German stars Elisabeth Seitz, Nadine Jarosch and Pia Tolle will also miss Euro’s in Moscow. Originally seen on GymFever on Facebook, thanks for the link Marie.

    Aren’t the Euros in Moscow? The worlds are in Antwerp, right?

    I thought Euros were in Russia this year?

    @Both – yes, correction made. That’s what happens when you post blog posts way passed your bedtime!
