Giulia Steingruber who historically won a bronze medal at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, a first for her country, has recently been forced to withdraw from the upcoming Swiss Cup due to injury. This two time Olympian has been suffering from foot pain and will have surgery in the new year. This will make it difficult for Steingruber to compete much next year and she has already confessed that she will miss Euros, however, she thinks she will be able to perform in Montreal at worlds next year. Thankfully, for Steingruber and fans around the world, this is only the beginning of a new quad and Giulia will have plenty of time to heal before the next Olympic games in Tokyo four years from now!
