Olympian Maggie Voisin isn't going to be competing in the Olympics after all. The disappointing news from the Winter Olympics has fans discouraged as the U.S. freestyle skier was a medal contender. According to Fox News on Saturday, the youngest member of Team USA injured her right ankle during training for ski slopestyle on Friday.

The competition on Tuesday might be a few days off, but the doctors weren't sure that she could be recovered by then. Looking to make sure she is in the best possible health for her run, the decision was to pull out of the competition.

A discretionary pick by the ski team, the athlete had big dreams at the competition. Being that Maggie Voisin is out of the Olympics in Sochi, don’t expect her to be gone forever, the unfortunate injury will temporarily sideline the athlete, but she isn’t down for good. Young and loving her sport, it seems that she will make a comeback and try again. Already a winner at the X Games with a silver medal, Maggie knows how to compete and fans can’t wait to see her in action.

Get well soon Maggie! We look forward to seeing you at the Olympics in 2018!
