///Maddie Desch Retires from Elite Gymnastics

Senior elite Maddie Desch announced her retirement from elite gymnastics yesterday. Her gymnastics career continues at the University of Alabama.

“Dear friends, family, and fans,
Today I am announcing my retirement from elite gymnastics. As some of you may know, I have been battling with a back injury for the past few months and it has prevented me from training at the level that I want and need. I recently found out that it was re-fractured, which leads me to this hard decision. I am so grateful for all of the opportunities I have had to represent the U.S. and wear that USA on my back. I have made so many great memories. I have not only grown as a gymnast, but a person through all of my experiences. With the little time that is left, I have decided to let my body heal and look forward to the amazing chapter I have ahead at the University of Alabama. I would like to thank everyone for their support throughout my journey as an elite gymnast.
Maddie Desch”

Maddie’s career continues as a NCAA gymnast at the University of Alabama.
