Livchikova tears ACL, Stoi! cries like a baby

News just in. Livchikova is a Stoi! favourite, and was a legitimate contender for the beam title this year. Lovely carriage and some unusual stuff in here too:

She was carried out of podium training last week after crashing a DTY. She did a pretty bad job of the vault generally, but Ukraine needed her to go all out to have any chance at staying in contention for London. So she was training it, and it didn’t come off. It was obvious from then on that she wasn’t going to participate at all in worlds. But now the nature of the injury is confirmed, we know there’s no chance of her being fit for the Test Event either.

Ukraine, incidentally, contrived to finish 19th. No test event for them either. Well done ladies.  You saved me the money I’d have spent on tickets for the Test Event.
