A knee injury has ended Peng Peng Lee's London Olympics dream.
The gymnast from Toronto suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee just over a week ago while training in Regina before the Canadian championships, forcing her out of the final Olympic selection event later this month.
"I have spent a great deal of time consulting with doctors and did a lot of soul searching to determine what was best for me," said Lee, who played a key role in helping Canada qualify a five-woman team for the Games.
"I do not want to rush into doing gymnastics for the Olympics if my knee could be at a greater risk and possibly affect me in the future."
Lee plans to attend UCLA on a gymnastics scholarship in the fall.
Lee will still travel to London as the women's team's honourary captain.
