Romania's Larisa Iordache took to her Instagram earlier today to share the sad news of her mother's death.

The heartbroken 25 year old gymnast wrote according to Google translation "May your soul be calm in your heart, my soul and my mind, you will remain the most powerful woman in the world. I love you."

According to digisport.ro, the four time World medalist's mother was undergoing Chemotherapy before her death.

Last April, Iordache won Olympic berth at European Championships, the first continental qualifier in the lead-up to Tokyo.

Tokyo will be her second Olympic Games. She competed at the 2012 London Olympic Games where she won bronze with her team.

Romania did not qualify a full team for Tokyo. Her compatriot Maria Holbură earned an individual spot to the Olympics after finishing in 54th place at the 2019 World championships.
