Ute gymnast Katie Kivisto said Sunday she will be able to begin rehabbing "right away" following Friday night's premeet warm-up accident in which she dislocated an elbow.
She was to have a magnetic resonance imaging today, but medical opinions until then are that she had a small chip broken off. The dislocation won't require surgery but will end her sophomore competition season.
Kivisto said Sunday she's already had the arm out of the cast, but it does hurt.
When she fell, "I looked up, looked at it and screamed," she said. She tried to stay through the meet but had to leave partway through to deal with the pain.
The Utes practiced Sunday in preparation for Friday's meet at Florida, which was ranked No. 2 last week.Coach Greg Marsden said Ashley Postell's sore foot, in which she strained a tendon last Monday, seemed better Sunday, and she was to begin working on an upgraded middle floor pass, as was Gritt Hofmann. Nina Kim will tweak her bars set where Marsden thinks she may be getting deductions. "It ought to be scoring higher," he said.
