In September last year Hambuchen injured his achilles tendon, forcing him to only compete on 4 pieces in the German National Championships. It seems that is is still causing him trouble,during training he tore his achilles tendon. You might remember that this is the same injury that took England’s David Beckham out of the 2010 World Cup.

The injury will leave him out of training for 3 – 6 months. In this interview, Hambuchen admits that even during the World Championships when he won bronze in the High Bar event, he was in pain with his injury to his left achilles tendon.

We can count him out for the European Championships in April, it’s highly unlikely that he will be fully recovered by then.

Best of luck with the operation and physio Fabian!
