The bad news got worse today when it was confirmed that Alicia Sacramone injured her Achilles Tendon this morning in training and is forced to sit out the Women’s Qualification competition. USAG have named the team as follows:
Vault: Vega, Douglas, Raisman, Wieber, Maroney
Uneven Bars: Raisman, Maroney, Vega, Wieber, Douglas
Balance Beam: Maroney, Vega, Raisman, Wieber, Douglas
Floor: Douglas, Vega, Wieber, Maroney, Raisman
Alicia Sacramone injured her Achilles tendon earlier today while tumbling on floor exercise during training. The results of her diagnostic tests, which were taken at a local hospital, have been sent to Sacramone ÂÂs physician back in the States for evaluation, which will dictate the next steps. An update will be provided once a final diagnosis is made.
Shoot!!! This is going to be tough for the USA.
