It seems that Romania's Diana Bulimar has left the sport for good, so they say.

A Tumblr user wrote that they have asked Lăcrămioara Moldovan, Bulimar's coach, about the status of the gymnast and she said that she along with Paula Tudoarache have retired from gymnastics.

If true, the news comes as no surprise. The 22 year old athlete has been out of competition for more than a year. Her last competition was the Olympic test event where Romania failed to qualify to Rio.

She has suffered from multiple injuries during her career. She missed 2013 and 2014 World championships, and 2016 European championship due leg injuries.

The Romanian athlete turned senior in 2011. Her highest achievements were winning an Olympic bronze medal with the team in 2012 and four medals at European championships.

Paula Tudoarache, who turned senior in 2014, is best known for being part of the 2014 Romanian World team.
