And another gymnast is out for the first half of the 2011 season following an Achilles Injury. British Gymnastics reports that Becky Downie suffered the injury in training.

Becky says:

“I am of course very disappointed to have suffered from this injury, but remain very positive about the future and am looking ahead to working hard with the British Gymnastics Medical Team to ensure that I do everything I can to be in a position to return strongly, and continue my journey towards London 2012.”
