///Correction: Larisa Lordache Still in The Running for Rio

A representative of the Romanian gymnastics federation (FRG) has contradicted yesterday’s report from Romanian newspaper Adevaru that Larisa Iordache is out of the running for Rio.

NBC Olympics story here.

A hand injury kept her from competing at the second qualification meet, the Rio Test Event in April. She underwent surgery but seemed to be on track to quickly return to training and full health.

Emanuel Fantaneau, Media Officer of the FRG, confirmed to NBC Olympics that Iordache returned to a hospital in Vienna earlier this week for further treatment of her hand. He said that Iordache’s doctors told her she’d need another two weeks of recovery time, but that she is still under consideration for Romania’s individual berth in women’s gymnastics.
