The International Gymnastics Federation announced two changes in the roster for the 2014 Youth Olympic Games today via Twitter.
Sadly, this means 15-year-old Rebeca Andrade of Brazil has withdrawn from the competition due to a broken toe according to Alexander Alexandrov, who doesn’t want to push her to compete with even a minor injury in order to save her for the start of her senior career in 2015.
The 2014 Youth Olympic Games will be held in Nanjing, China, from August 16-24. For a full roster of competitors, please visit our list.
