On Sunday 28th May 2017 gymnast Emily Little was taken to hospital with a serious neck injury from a fall during the Australian Gymnastics Championships at Melbourne’s Hisense Arena.
It was the last night of competition, Little had shone in her previous routines and advanced to the Senior International Apparatus Final until an uncharacteristic fall on her first tumbling pass on Floor ruled her out.
Little was taken to the Alfred Hospital immediately for assessment and returned home to Perth four days later.
Five months on from the frightening incident – Little gives us an update:
We wish Emily all the best in her recovery.
