Sandra Izbasa went back and forth between deciding to retire from gymnastics.

She decided to take a break in 2013 to go study for a bachelor’s degree, but she was pulled back into the sport, going on to compete in the 2013 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships in Antwerp, Belgium. She then retired, but came out of retirement in 2015 to try for the 2016 olympics team. She quit soon after after realizing that she wouldn’t be in good enough shape to compete at the Olympic level.
