Jenn Stuczynski Will Not Compete in Berlin, by Larry Eder


In a quote delivered to us from Jenn Stucyznski's management team, Global Athletics & Marketing, Jenn has decided not to compete in Berlin: " Despite my focused efforts for the last five weeks to get 100% healthy, I made the decision on Sunday that I just can’t be ready in time to compete in Berlin. The doctors who are treating me say that my Achilles injury is not serious, but it just has not improved enough for me to vault next weekend. I think I just ran out of time. I’m disappointed I won’t get the opportunity to join Team USA in Germany.”
