Sending wishes of a speedy recovery to Shaun Swadling who was scheduled to be the non-travelling reserve to Australian Trampoline Olympian Blake Gaudry for London. See the full article from Gymnastics Australia below.
Australian Olympic Trampoline reserve, Shaun Swadling (Newcastle), has been forced to withdraw from his non-travelling reserve commitments after injuring himself at training last night.
Swadling dislocated his knee at training in Adelaide yesterday, and was transported to Flinders Medical Centre where he was assessed and the dislocation was corrected.

Adam Sachs, High Performance Manager for Gymnastics Australia, said Swadling had suffered major soft tissue injury but no bone injury has been sustained.

“Shaun spent the night under observation but is likely to be released this morning following advice from medical staff. Our main priority is focusing on Shaun’s recovery and ensuring he has the proper support,” said Sachs.

Gymnastics Australia will look to name a replacement non-travelling reserve within a week.
