An Alabama Gymnast’s Road to Recovery
Alabama gymnast Luisa Blanco competed the entire 2021 season with a torn labrum and a bicep tendonitis, but that didn't stop her from etching her name in the Alabama gymnastics record book. Blanco was a first-team All-American-All-Around, the 2021 NCAA balance beam champion, and won many other accolades in the 2021 season. She was also the first Bama gymnast to score a perfect 10.0 on the balance beam since Kaitlyn Clark in 2014, according to AL.com.
