Reports online say China’s Cheng Fei has injured her achilles tendon. More when news comes in. Dominique Moceanu’s husband Mike Canales tweets the news:
Thanks to WangXiangu over at the International Gymnast Forum for the link to Coach Lu’s confirmation of Cheng Fei’s achilles rupture. He explains that she injured her achilles whilst training floor today and was operated on immediately. Coach Lu’s accoint has previously given us information from training camps etc, so I would expect that the source can be trusted.
Something has to be done about this injury, we must find better ways of preventing it. On the other hand Alicia Sacramone has made an incredible comeback since tearing her Achilles at Worlds back in October.
