Romanian star Larisa Iordache tore her left Achilles' tendon prior to the competition on Wednesday at the 2017 World Gymnastics Championships in Montreal.

Romanian star Larisa Iordache, a contender to win the all-around title at the world championships in Montreal, tore her left Achilles' tendon while warming up her tumbling on floor exercise in the first rotation of the third session of women's qualification.

This is the latest setback for the 21-year-old Romanian, who has been plagued by various injuries throughout her career.

Iordache had just won the all-around and floor exercise at the Summer Universiade in Taipei in August. In September she won balance beam and took second on floor exercise at the FIG World Cup in Paris.

Iordache plans to return to Romania on Thursday for immediate surgery.
