Ashley Priess talks to IG

She quit because of her back.  Her sister also suffered from a back injury that caused her to retire from college gymnastics.  


I read a comment on IG Forum from someone who seemed to think that Ashley quitting was ” True proof that the Olympics is not the end all do all for all elite gymnasts.”  Considering that Ashley cites an injured back as the problem, I don’t see how this is proof of that.   

We don’t see a whole lot of uninjured athletes with a good shot of going to the games just giving it up.  How many times have we seen that?
