Kevin Langeree geblesseert

Vorige week op Fuerteventura raakte Kevin geblesseerd en moest stoppen met de wedstrijd. Hier vertelt Kevin zijn verhaal over het ongeluk..



Ok so here is an updated. First of all I want to thanks everyone for there help and the nice messages on Face Book and the forums. As you might already know I’m injured, I torn my ACL… It’s the biggest nightmare of every professional athlete. But I always had it in the back of my mind that this could happen but it still is a big shocker.

This is how it happened. I was riding in the finals of the doubles and I was really hungry to win this one. I started off good but on the 4th trick I tried a KGB. The take off and the rotation was like normal and I was ready to land heal side. I landed right on a chop with a little to much force and my knee couldn’t hold it. I felt right away it wasn’t good. But when I was underwater I thought I would still be able to finish my heat I came up and looked at my knee and I saw it was dislocated. So I wobbled it around and it popped back in. This wasn’t good… The jetski picked me up and dropped me off at the beach.

I never had an injury before but I’ve seen a few people getting hurt but now it’s me… and that really sucks. To fix my ACL I have to get an operation and rehab is going to take 6 months. So ill be out of the water for a long time.

Now I’m already motivated to go and train hard and come back stronger then ever! Hopefully see you on the water in 6 months.
