LDS Gymnast Dantzscher Injured Ahead of Olympics

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA -- LDS Gymnast Jamie Dantzscher was injured Thursday when she twisted an ankle in training, However, US Gymnastics team coach Bela Karolyi said Thursday he isn't concerned about the injury. "We know her abilities, we know her heart and what a fighter she is so I definitely hope to see her performing with the other team members."

The injury occurred less than three days before Dantzscher's first scheduled competition, on Sunday, September 17th, when her team is part of the women's gymnastic qualifiers, held throughout the day. According to Karolyi, the injury wasn't serious. "We had a small surprise with the injury to Jamie," he added. "I believe this is just a temporary difficulty and we are not extremely concerned."

Karolyi was more concerned with an injury to Dantzscher's teammate, Morgan White, who was forced from the competition Tuesday with a foot stress fracture. White was conidered the team's most consistent performer.
