U.S. champion Ragan Smith suffered an ankle injury and withdrew minutes before the world gymnastics championships all-around final in Montreal on Friday night.
Smith was seen inside the 1976 Olympic Stadium on crutches after rolling her ankle warming up for her first event — vault.
She was taken for X-Rays, according to USA Gymnastics.
“I could not see exactly how bad it is,” U.S. national team coordinator Valeri Liukin said. “She just landed a little sideways on her vault. I was hoping it’s not that bad. I thought she would get up.”
