Six time national U.S.A. champion, announces her retirement from rhythmic gymnastics. Rebecca was dealing for over two years with a serious spine injury. Sereda has been practicing gymnastics for about 13 years being PanAmerican Champion, Junior and Senior national champion and participant in several World Cups.
Unfortunatly I must leave this sport without achieving my ultimate goal of competing at the Olympics and this breaks my heart to pieces. However, when I look back at my career I know I have accomplished so much more than I ever thought imaginable
Becca is very upset with her decision but she tried to do all what she could: visiting doctors all around the country, doing countless procedures to find a solution, but she still was in pain. She wants to be related to the sport, not as an athlete, but as coach or judge.
Letting go of this sport and no longer being able to call myself an athlete makes me very updet but I know if I were to continue my health would decline”
Sereda is very thankful to USA Gymnastics Federation and her RG Club, Isadora. Nowadays US Senior Individual team is: Laura Zeng, Aliya Protto, Cindy Lu and Jasmine Kerber.
