Auburn Gymnast Samantha Cerio Retires After Breaking BOTH Legs (VIDEO)

This is just devastating to see… Auburn gymnast, Samantha Cerio, is retiring from the sport after breaking both of her legs during a floor routine at the NCAA Regional Semifinals. Cerio snapped both of her legs while trying to land a handspring double front on Friday — she was stretchered off the mat with 2 air casts.

Cerio quickly retired after, but left a statement to thank everyone on her journey:

“Thank you Auburn family for giving me a home and a chance to continue doing the sport that will always be my first love. I am honored to have had the privilege to represent the navy and orange AU for the past 4 years with my team by my side. Thank you for letting me share my passion with you. Thank you for letting me be a part of something bigger than myself.”

WARNING — THE VIDEO IS GNARLY AND GRAPHIC

Prayers out to Samantha and her family!
