McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman injured while on tour (Video)

McKayla Maroney and Aly Raisman were both hurt during the second night of the Kellogg’s Tour of Gymnastics Champions. The gold medal winners were performing along with the rest of the “Fierce Five” in Ontario, Calif., when they hurt themselves on the uneven bars Sunday night.

At around the 1:25 mark in the video above, you can see Maroney hurt herself on her dismount from the uneven bars. Maroney stayed down after falling and was carried off the floor. Then around the 1:55 mark, Raisman loses her grip on the bars as she’s finishing a Shaposhnikova move. She was able to walk back and rejoin the group, though neither girl participated in the finale.

USA Gymnastics said that Raisman had bruised knees, while Maroney was in the hospital undergoing testing on her left knee. She even tweeted a picture from the hospital on Monday.

Maroney was later diagnosed with a fractured left tibia.

And this is supposed to be an exhibition tour? It’s never an easy deal when it comes to gymnastics.
