Revenge for Rio

Gymnast Samir Ait Said is back in competition after breaking his leg at the the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.

The Frenchman suffered the fracture upon landing his vault during men's qualification. But only days after the injury was sustained Samir was attempting to walk in hospital.

Now, just over a year after Rio, Samir is back competing and will be looking to start his Tokyo campaign at the Montreal World Championships.
