Paul Hamm injured again …

Andrew Thornton recently posted a convincing argument that a healthy Paul Hamm could challenge Uchimura in the all-around.

That showdown won’t come for a while, I’m afraid.

The Olympic champion gymnast said Monday that he has a torn labrum in his right shoulder and will have surgery this week. He had hoped to return to competition for the first time since 2008 at next month’s Winter Cup, a U.S. ranking meet.

“This is extremely disappointing since I have come so far and was preparing to compete in February,” Hamm said in a statement through his agent. “I fully intend to rehab my shoulder with the goal of making the team and competing in the London Olympics.”
