SAN DIEGO, Calif., Sept. 11 – At the Sept. 9 performance of the Kellogg’s® Tour of Gymnastics Champions in Ontario, Calif., 2012 Olympic gold-medalists McKayla Maroney and Aly Raisman were injured while performing on the uneven bars (spectator video above).
Raisman, who was examined at the arena by the physician for the performance, has bruised knees. She will follow an icing and additional treatment regimen with continued assessment by the medical staff, but does not require any further testing at this time.
Maroney underwent medical evaluations and tests to determine the extent of her injury to her left knee. Her MRI showed a fractured tibia on her left leg, and she is currently in a brace to keep the leg stabilized. Maroney and her family are consulting with physicians and specialists to determine the proper course of treatment. Maroney’s return to the Kellogg’s Tour in some capacity will be determined at the appropriate time during her recovery.
