Eduarda Mello Queiroz


Brazil’s gymnastic federation says a 17-year-old rhythmic gymnast has died in a car accident.

The federation says Eduarda Mello Queiroz, who finished second in this year’s Brazilian championship, was killed early Sunday in a one-car wreck in the southeastern state of Espirito Santo. The car’s driver is in serious condition and another Brazilian gymnast, 19-year-old Natalia Gaudio, sustained minor injuries.

Brazil’s federal police say the car rolled down a small ravine and struck a tree after the driver lost control at a tight curve. Queiroz was on the back seat and apparently was not wearing a seat belt.
