Potential Comebacks 2014 - Sabrina Vega (USA)

Sabrina Vega was last seen competing at the 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials. While she was a member of the 2011 world championships team, Sabrina was not selected to be a member of the 2012 Olympic team. Despite this disappointment, she continued to train into 2013, changing gyms from Dynamic Gymnastics in New York to GAGE in Missouri. Early 2013, Sabrina had shoulder surgery to repair an old injury. This kept her out of competition for 2013. Fans of Sabrina are hoping to see her back in competition early next year and are excited to see what results the gym switch will have in her gymnastics.
