Worlds 2011: Alicia Sacramone out for USA


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

Gymnastike who is in Tokyo reports:

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 Â’s 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.
