Nastia Liukin was one of the stars of the 2008 U.S. Olympic team, winning five medals, but she struggled during the first round of competition at the Olympic trials for the 2012 Olympics. She failed to land her dismount on the uneven bars during the trials. “It’s a little hard,” she said. “You work so hard and your body doesn’t just hold up.”
Nastia Liukin has been battling shoulder issues during her comeback. Before the trials began, she said, “You don’t really think about it, you push through and take some pain killers and you’re good.”
The final day of women competitions is Sunday, July 1st, 2012.
