Senna Deriks retires

Senna Deriks put an end to her gymnastics career. The 2016 Olympian was a lock to the Belgian gymnastics team since 2016 and was the team captain the last few years.

Born on 30th of December 2000 in Emmen (The Netherlands), she was eligible for the 2016 Olympic Games by 2 days. She started gymnastics at Gymgroep AS. Her father requested the Belgian citizenship to enable Senna to train in Ghent, in the training center of the Flemish Gymnastics Federation.

Senna missed the 2014 Junior European Championships and the 2015 European Youth Olympic Festival due to injury but came back strong at the Top Gym and was basically a lock to the team in 2016. She was part of the team that qualified for the Olympic Games at the Olympic Test Event in Rio and was also the youngest athlete competing at  the Rio Olympic Games, where she placed 12th with the team.

​Plagued by injuries, Senna only competed on uneven bars at the European championships in Glasgow in 2018. The team finished 3rd in qualifications but did not compete in the team final in order to avoid any injury, as Worlds later that year were the first step towards the 2020 Games. At the World championships in Doha on November, Senna was part of the team that finished 11th.

In 2019 Senna competed at the European Games in Minsk where she finished 6th in the all-around, with her personal best. She was the captain of the team that finished 10th at the World Championships in Stuttgart and qualified as a team for the Tokyo Olympics. The postponement of the Games was a key factor to her decision, as she decided to concentrate on her studies. We wish her all the best!
