No comeback for Paul Hamm!

At least no comeback in the next couple of months… Paul Hamm needs a shoulder surgery – just when everyone thought he would make a great comeback at next months Winter Cup.

The Olympic champion gymnast said Monday that he has a torn labrum in his right shoulder and will have surgery this week. He had hoped to return to competition for the first time since 2008 at next month’s Winter Cup, a U.S. ranking meet.

“This is extremely disappointing since I have come so far and was preparing to compete in February,” Hamm said in a statement through his agent. “I fully intend to rehab my shoulder with the goal of making the team and competing in the London Olympics.”

    This makes me sad but if he can be healthy for 2012, I’m okay with it.
