Since the announcement that Jordan Wieber will compete at the American Cup this weekend in place of Nicole Hibbert we’ve all been wondering, for what reason? I saw a bit of a buzz about twitter and various forums that she was injured.

 

British Gymnastics issued a press release this morning, confirming Nicole’s injury:

 

British Senior Women’s Artistic gymnast Nicole Hibbert has sustained a serious knee injury that will rule her out of competitive action for a prolonged period of time.

Nicole, who formed part of the British Team at both the 2010 European and World Championships, will require surgery before starting a lengthy rehabilitation programme with the British Gymnastics medical Team

Tim Jones, British Gymnastics Olympic Performance Director: “This is extremely disappointing news for Nicole. We will be working hard to ensure that she receives the very best care in the coming months to give her every chance of a strong return to form in time for London 2012 ”

 

What a complete pity for Nicole. There’s another gymnast who won’t make it to the European Championships in Berlin. How many injuries are we at now?? With Becky Downie already out, that’s two from British Gymnastics now.
