Marcel Nguyen: Unfortunately, he has to skip his home Europeans

Anyone who saw Germany's two-time Olympic silver medalist from London (2012) Marcel NGUYEN limping away at the friendly meet in Magglingen /Switzerland last weekend when he left the mat with visible pain after landing too low after his jump (double somersault rollover) already suspected it:
That won't work anymore, despite his fighting intentions, with his eagerly desired comeback attempt for the European Gymnastics Championships in August in his hometown of Munich...! This was also confirmed today by his management: Marcel has to cancel the last German European Championship qualifier next week because of another injury to his knee, which has already been damaged by two cruciate ligament tears ... at best he will only experience the European Championship as a passive visitor!
