Sweden's Jonna Adlerteg has torn her ACL during her participation at Montpellier's all around final.

The 19 year old gymnast sustained the injury when she was performing on floor exercise during the first rotation of the competition. She landed badly on one of her skills and was rushed to the hospital. She will most likely miss the rest of this year's competitions. 

On Wednesday, Adlerteg had a disappointing performance as she fell on her strongest apparatus hence failing to qualify to the event's final. After the competition, she told Swedish media that she seeks redemption in the all around final.

Nonetheless, she is looking forward to compete at Rio Olympic Games next year.

In 2013, Jonna caught the gym fans attention when she won Swedish first European medal in over 50 years.
