According to a report on WCVB-TV (Ch. 5), Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman injured herself while performing in the Kellogg's Tour of Gymnastics Champions in Ontario, Calif. over the weekend.
The Needham native reportedly fell to her stomach on the arena's concrete floor during a routine on the uneven bars, but was able to walk out of the arena unassisted.
Fellow Olympian medalist McKayla Maroney was also injured after landing a layout dismount off the uneven bars. The gymnast, famous for her not-impressed smirk, was carried off the mat and, along with Raisman, did not return for the show's finale.
A source told NewsCenter 5 that Raisman is fine and is in San Diego, where the 40-city tour, which comes to Boston on Nov. 11, is scheduled to continue.
The Kellogg's Tour also includes Olympians Gabrielle Douglas, Kyla Ross and Jordyn Wieber.
