Temple Gymnast Jasmine Johnson knew she was in trouble as soon as she took her turn during the first intrasquad meet in 2013.
“I ended up fracturing my [right] wrist,” Johnson said. “It was only a couple weeks before we had our first actual meet at George Washington and as soon as I took my turn I knew I fractured it.”
The injury cost the fifth year senior and kinesiology major the entire 2013 season. She could have called it quits knowing that she would have to redshirt and stay another year in school while rehabbing her wrist, but something else told the Smithtown, N.Y. native that she should stay.
