UNC gymnast Meredith Magjuka looks back, moves forward

Saturday, February 23, 2013

Three years ago, North Carolina gymnast Meredith Magjuka broke her back. Three weeks ago, she broke her personal record in a floor exercise. To get to where she is today, she had to go for broke. “You might be able to slow her down a little bit,” UNC coach Derek Galvin said. “But you cannot stop her … She only knows one speed, and that’s all-out.” (Daily Tar Heel)
