Subtalar dislocation is a rare injury in elite athletes. We report an unusual case of simultaneous bilateral subtalar dislocation in an international female athlete competing in gymnastics. These injuries require prompt reduction and immediate immobilisation in a plaster cast for 8 weeks or wire stabilisation after open reduction if an abrupt end to a promising career is to be prevented.
