SALT LAKE CITY -
University of Utah freshman gymnast Crystal Gilmore has withdrawn from classes and is returning to her home in Cambridge, Ontario, Canada. Gilmore cited a series of frustrating injuries as the reason for her decision.
"Due to ongoing injuries, I have decided to withdraw from the University of Utah gymnastics team," said Gilmore. "I'm very happy about my decision. I've left on good terms and I'm looking forward to getting healthy."
Utah Head Gymnastics Coach Greg Marsden accepted Gilmore's decision, saying, "We wish Crystal well and will certainly try to assist her with whatever she ultimately decides to do."
