According to the Associated Press USA’s comeback kid Paul Hamm is to have surgery for a shoulder injury.
“This is extremely disappointing since I have come so far and was preparing to compete in February,” Hamm said in a statement through his agent. “I fully intend to rehab my shoulder with the goal of making the team and competing in the London Olympics.”
“Though I am upset that I will not have the opportunity to (compete at Winter Cup) … and may not be able to compete at the Visa Championships this summer, I have to be optimistic,” Hamm said, “and remember that I am still on track to be fully prepared for 2012.”
What a pity, I’d been looking forward to seeing Hamm next month at the Winter Cup.
