Knee injury keeps Olympic champ Marin out of Tokyo

Spain’s Carolina Marin, the women’s Olympic badminton singles champion, will miss the Tokyo Games after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament and meniscus in her left knee.

The 27-year-old will undergo surgery in the coming days after suffering the injury during a training session last week. “This is another blow that I have to deal with, but I will certainly be back,” she wrote on social media. The three-time world champion also ruptured the ACL in her right knee in 2019 and missed that year’s world championships. Marin was crowned European champion for the fifth straight time last month and was one of Spain’s leading medal hopes. She beat India’s PV Sindhu in the 2016 Rio Olympic final.
