Olympic vault silver medallist Thomas Bouhail of France is doubtful for next year's London Games after breaking his leg in training.
The 25-year-old, who finished second to Poland's Leszek Blanik in Beijing in 2008 before taking gold in the 2010 world championships, said in a statement on Tuesday that an operation on his leg had been successful.
Bouhail faces a race against time to be fit for the London Olympics which take place from July 27 to Aug. 12.
