Marcel Nguyen's Worlds participation is in danger

Currently only limited training is available for German Vice-Champion Marcel NGUYEN (TSV Unterhaching). "In the shoulder, a tendon touched," said the 32-year-old athlet at a press conference today in Stuttgart. So there is always the risk of tearing, even in case of overload, so that only a "well-dosed training" in constant contact with the doctors can be realized. The 9-times World Championships participant, who would like to experience his tenth Wrlds and another Olympics, and the successful Olympic qualification match of the German gymnasts, will not be able to take the final test under competitive conditions on Saturday in Backnang in a triple meet against the national teams from Great Britain and Romania replaceable, probably have to do without.
