Shayna Jack forced to sit out world championships after breaking her hand

Gold-medal-winning swimmer Shayna Jack has broken her hand in training and will miss the rest of the world swimming championships.

Jack broke her hand as she was warming up for Wednesday morning’s 100-meters freestyle heats at the competition in Budapest.

The 23-year-old, in her return from a doping ban, previously helped Australia to gold in the 4x100m freestyle relay on Saturday and silver in the mixed 4x100m medley relay on Tuesday.

Australia still took victory in heat one, with teammate Mollie O’Callaghan swimming the fastest qualifying time, followed by Canada’s Penny Oleksiak, the United States’ Torri Huske, and world record holder Sarah Sjöström.

Jack is just the latest high-profile swimmer to pull out of the competition.

Hong Kong’s Siobhán Haughey, the Olympic silver medallist in the 100m and 200m freestyle, withdrew on Monday due to an ankle injury.

Four-time Olympic medallist Chad Le Clos withdrew from the men’s competition on Monday due to health concerns.

The South African said on social media he had been struggling with his breathing for the previous three weeks “since having multiple stints of bronchitis”.

American star Caeleb Dressel withdrew from the 100m freestyle on medical grounds on Tuesday.
