Top shooter Hill of Britain tests positive, will miss Tokyo
LONDON (AP) — Top-ranked shooter Amber Hill of Britain will miss the Tokyo Olympics after testing positive for COVID-19, she announced Wednesday.
The No. 1 in women’s skeet said she tested positive Tuesday night shortly before her scheduled departure for Tokyo, and that she was in self-isolation with no symptoms.
“Broken is about the only way to describe the pain I’m feeling right now,” the 23-year-old Hill wrote on her Instagram account.
British tennis players Johanna Konta and Dan Evans previously withdrew after testing positive.
