Default Penny is out of the World Championship

Really unfortunate but sounds like the right call for the long term,

Canada's Penny Oleksiak won't compete at the world championships in July.

The country's most decorated Olympian announced Thursday she'd be unable to swim, choosing instead to focus on rehab from left knee surgery last August, in addition to a shoulder injury that developed in the interim.

Oleksiak raced for the first time since surgery in May, competing at the Mare Nostrum Tour in Barcelona but failing to reach a final. The 22-year-old Toronto native called those swims a "checkpoint" for worlds.

"We reviewed my swims there and it showed me the level I want to get back to. Now I need to focus on my rehab to get back to where I want to be and put myself in position to be at my best next season," she said in a press release.
