|French champion Marine Brevet will miss the Olympic Games after suffering a dislocated elbow on Saturday.
2010 national champion Marine Brevet suffered a dislocated elbow Saturday, pushing her off the French team for the upcoming Olympic Games in London.
Brevet, 17, reportedly tripped while tumbling out of a 1 1/2 twist on floor during training in Haguenau. She underwent surgery Sunday and was discharged from the hospital on Monday.
Known for her classical lines and artistry, Brevet won back-to-back national titles in 2009 (junior) and 2010 (Senior). She finished second all-around at the 2012 championships in June behind champion Anne Kuhm.
Brevet helped France finish 11th at the 2011 Worlds in Tokyo, advancing the team to the second Olympic qualification in January. France finished second at that event, granting the nation a full team berth for this summer's Olympic Games.
Valentine Sabatou is the official alternate, but has not yet been announced as Brevet's replacement. France already lost Marine Petit and Clara Della Vedova to injury prior to the team selection.
The French Olympic squad is scheduled to compete in a quadrangular with Germany, Italy and Romania on July 7 in Bucharest.
