Russian gymnast slams onto her back after falling 8ft from bars, emerges unscathed (VIDEO) Russian junior gymnast Vladislava Urazova has avoided injury after crashing onto her back from the uneven bars during her all-around performance at the 2018 European championships in Glasgow, Scotland.

The 14-year-old hit the upper bar with her legs on the Jaeger release, causing her to fall flat on her back from around 8ft (240cm) following the mistake.

The incident could have resulted in a serious injury if Urazova’s coach hadn’t managed to break the gymnast’s fall when she missed the bar.

Rising Russian star Urazova was leading the all-around field before committing errors on the bars which could potentially cost her a gold medal at the European Championships.

After the first subdivision, Urazova sits first on the floor with a perfect score of 13,500, which will definitely grant her a place in the final.

Her solid performance on the vault made her one of the favorites to clinch the European title on this apparatus.
