Kassidy Cook, the American diver who finished 13th in the three-meter event in Rio, is out of this summer’s World Championships in Budapest with a shoulder injury, according to USA Diving.

Cook was scheduled to compete in the synchronized three-meter event along with Maria Coburn, but that plan has been scrapped due to Cook’s injury. It’s currently unclear if Coburn will compete in the event with a different partner or if the U.S. will even enter a team in that competition.

Cook still competes for Stanford, and after taking an Olympic redshirt in the 2015-2016 season, she has one year of NCAA eligibility remaining.
