Canada’s Olympic hopeful Christine Lee was forced to withdraw from selection prior to the London 2012 Games when she tore her ACL whilst training a double twisting Yurchenko at the Canadian Nationals in May. Today Christine tweeted that she is receiving surgery on her knee . Surgery on athletes with ACL tears is common, once the swelling and inflammation subside. Wishing her the best of luck with her continued recovery, a lot of physical therapy is recquired following an ACL surgery as the knee loses flexibliity. We spotted her in London, walking normally as if no knee injury had occured – good sign!
