Larisa Iordache, who announced her retirement last year, is not ruling out a future comeback.

The Romanian gymnast told gsp.pro that her biggest regret is not winning an individual medal at an Olympic Games.

She competed at the 2012 London Olympic Games, where she won bronze with her team.

Individually, she finished in ninth place in the all around and in sixth place on the balance beam.

She did not compete at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games as she was named an alternate.

At the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, she intended to compete on all four events but pulled out and decided to perform on the balance beam only due to unbearable ankle pain.

She qualified to the apparatus final in fourth place but later withdrew after re-injuring her ankle on her dismount during qualifications.

"I don't mean anything concrete at the moment. But I don't say no to coming back. If I do it, I'll do it quietly and see how things go," the former gymnast said.

"Anyway, I'm going to the Olympics in 2024, because I like Paris, but I don't know from what position."

Iordache is considered to be one of unluckiest gymnasts, health wise, as she struggled with a series of injuries throughout most of her gymnastics career.

The retired gymnast is the winner of four World medals, and sixteen European medals.
