What up B??

We caught up with Bianca Jordaan recently to find out how her recovery is going. 

She reached her 12 week date post surgery on Dec 28 and was given the go ahead to start jogging.  She did lots of that on the beach in Cuba during a recent family vacation.  She jogged everywhere.  She is doing easy and basic skills on bars but will have to wait another 3 months before she is allowed to touch any other equipment or attempt tumbling.  She conditions 5 days a week with basic skills and does physio 3 times a week.  At physio she has taken to the pool and loves it.  She will be visiting Eastern Michigan this coming weekend to go watch a NCAA competition and hope to see Nikki Patterson compete.  Bianca is gearing up to write her SATs this month.  It sounds like Bianca might be gearing up for university gymnastics somewhere in her future?!?
