John Orozco – torn ACL


Another London 2012 gymnast has fallen injured on the Kelloggs Tour of Gymnastics Champions. USA Gymnastics confirmed this news today, following Facebook updates and Tweets from John Orozco himself at the weekend.

2012 Olympian John Orozco injured his left knee on a dismount from the parallel bars during the Oct. 19 show of the Kellogg’s Tour of Gymnastics Champions in St. Louis. Orozco is expected to see a specialist this week, which will determine the extent of his injury and his status for future performances. USA Gymnastics and the Kellogg’s Tour will provide more detailed information when it is available.

In the last few minutes Orozco has taken to his twitter to announce that he has suffered from the dreaded, torn ACL injury. An injury previously suffered by Aliya Mustafina, Christine Lee, Julie Crocket and Daniel Keatings.

Spoke with my Dr. and it looks like I tore my ACL and Meniscus on my left leg.Doc says It’ll be months for healing but rehab starts soon then Surgery in a few weeks and yea… It’s not gonna be fun

Wishing John the very best of recovery.
