Local gymnast injured, will miss Worlds
TIANJIN, China Cincinnati's Jennie Thompson reinjured her left ankle in practice and will not compete for the U.S. gymnastics team in the World Gymnastics Championships, a team spokeswoman said.
Thompson, 18, third in the U.S. championships in August, hurt the ankle Monday while practicing the vault, spokeswoman Susan Polakoff said. Team officials decided Thursday night she wasn't fit for the championships, which start Saturday.
She will be replaced by Morgan White, 16, who, like Thompson, trains at the Cincinnati Gymnastics Academy. White was the all-around gold medalist in the Pan American Games.
