Lauren Mitchell Focuses on 2014 CWG

An article has emerged on Australian website Ninemsn.com.au with Australian gymnast Lauren Mitchell where she discusses her future in gymnastics. Check out the full article at: http://wwos.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=8595837 but here is a snippet:
 
An injured Lauren Mitchell is doubtful about her road to Rio de Janeiro but says she's focusing on getting back to competing on the gymnastics floor at the Commonwealth Games.

And that:

But the 21-year-old missed out on a medal at the London Olympics after placing fifth in the floor final while nursing a chronic shoulder injury.
Mitchell says she's still consulting doctors about the extent of the injury and whether she'll be fit to head back to competition.
As such, it's too early to tell whether she'll be making her third Olympic appearance at Rio in 2016.
"I'm not really thinking that far (to Rio), because I'll be 24," she told AAP.
"I know (head coach) Peggy (Liddick) is like 'yeah Lauren will be there (at Rio)', but I'm not thinking that far ahead yet. But we'll see how we go."
Mitchell wants to get to the world championships in September to contest the individual floor competition.
After that, she's got her eyes on the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
