Injury report: Bross, Deng, Tweddle, Zgoba
Posted December 4, 2008on:
No update on Anna Pavlova just now, but some news on Rebecca Bross, Deng Linlin, Beth Tweddle and Dariya Zgoba, who are all injured.
I have finally confirmed for myself the long-circulating rumor that Bross’s injury at the most recent training camp was not minor, as originally suggested, but actually a fairly serious injury that could have her out for all of next season. Also, as I understand it, it was not to the leg that has caused her trouble in the past, but was an acute trauma to her knee on her good leg. Too bad, especially since a lot of people were expecting a big senior debut at the American Cup.
ETA: I’ve since heard that the surgery was to remove a bone chip, but I can’t confirm that.
Deng Linlin apparently had fairly serious surgery and will not be participating in any competitions for the rest of the year.
Tweddle recently had a shoulder operation according to British Gymnastics (see here), explaining her absence on the WCF roster.
Slightly more interestingly, Zgoba had to scratch at the Glasgow Grand Prix and the DTB Cup because of an injury, and then was scheduled to have surgery. Either she had it in October and is sufficiently healed to participate in the WCF, or she has postponed it.
