Alicia Sacramone injured her right Achilles‘ tendon during training and forced the US team to exclude her from the women’s qualifying at the 2011 World Gymnastics Championships, according to reports by several international sports sites on Thursday, October 6, 2011.

The 2011 World Gymnastics Championships women’s qualifying will begin on Friday, October 7. The US women’s team is scheduled to compete on Saturday. Sacramone is the team captain of the US women’s team.

Reports said that the US women’s team will surely miss Sacramone‘s leadership with her usual big scores on vault, balance beam and floor exercise.

The loss of Sacramone may not be a problem for the Americans goal of finishing in the top eight to qualify for next year’s London Olympics.
