Ex-Auburn Gymnast Samantha Cerio Does Backflip 1-Year After Dislocating Both Knees, Tearing Ligaments (VIDEO)

I’m sure you remember the story of Samantha Cerio who went viral for all the wrong reasons back in 2019 when she dislocated both knees and tore multiple ligaments while attempting a double-front with a blind landing on her first tumbling pass at the Baton Rouge Regionals in Louisiana.

That devastating injury caused her to retire from the sport she loved forever.

She has since graduated and even gotten married to the love of her life.

Fast forward to earlier this month and Cerio celebrated the 1-year anniversary of the injury, and she is not only walking without an issue, she can actually do backflips.

Flip through the post to see the backflip.

Good for her.
