Team GB judoka Kimberley Renicks has been forced to withdraw from the Olympic Games later this year.
The 28-year-old, who won gold at the Commonwealth Games in 2014, has been informed that she requires surgery to correct a shoulder injury.
"I'm gutted. I can't really describe it," she told BBC Sport.
"The Olympics is your dream. It's the one you want to make. It's a knockback but I'm still young enough to pick myself up."
Renicks was due to be Britain's top-ranked player at -48kg.
