Gymnast breaks neck in fall
Polish gymnast Joanna Skowronska has been diagnosed with a broken cervical vertebra in her neck following a fall while training on Thursday.

Olympic gymnastics officials said the 22-year-old, who was practising on the asymmetric bars, was in a stable condition in an Athens hospital.

She will have to wear a supporting brace for the next eight weeks.

Argentina's Celeste Carnevale, the first reserve gymnast, is expected to take Skowronska's place.
