Ellie Black calls withdrawal from Olympic event over injury ‘frustrating, upsetting’

Canadian gymnast Ellie Black said Wednesday that having to withdraw from the all-around competition final at the Olympics being held Thursday after injuring her ankle while in Tokyo was frustrating and upsetting. Black has had to deal with being in and out of lockdowns, the postponement of the Olympics and injuring the same ankle in June just before the Games, but said it was something she’d have to overcome and was glad the injury this week wasn’t worse than it could have been.
