Fifteen-year-old Maggie Voisin has announced she will not compete in Sochi, after suffering a fractured fibula in practice on Friday. The Whitefish, Montana native was a favorite to medal at the Olympics.

“I have never been so frustrated and I’m disappointed to announce that yesterday in training I fractured my fibula right above my ankle,” Maggie announced via social media. “Even though I will not be able to compete in Sochi I’m fortunate to be able to look back on such an amazing season. I never thought to come as far as I did and I’m honored to have had all these experiences. I’m going to enjoy every minute here in Sochi and I’m looking forward to supporting my team, my friends, and everyone participating in the Games. I want to thank everyone for all of your support especially to my family, friends, hometown, and sponsors. None of this would have been possible without you and I can’t wait for many more years ahead.”
