Pics: Alicia Sacramone Has a Torn Achilles, Olympics in Doubt
Without question the star of ESPN the Magazine Body Issue wasn’t Hope Solo or Blake Griffin, it was gymnast Alicia Sacramone.
Many are just finding out about Sacramone, but I have known about her for years. So it wasn’t a surprise to me she opened eyes specifically with this pic.
Unfortunately for Sacramone she has a torn her Achilles and now her participation 2012 Summer Olympics is in doubt.
Beijing Olympic captain Alicia Sacramone has a torn Achilles’ tendon and expects to have surgery Monday.
The London Olympics begin in less than 10 months, and USA Gymnastics said Friday that Sacramone’s recovery time won’t be known until doctors see exactly where the tear is. Sacramone will have an MRI and meet with a doctor who specializes in Achilles’ tendon injuries after she returns to the United States on Saturday.
“Alicia is good,” said her coach, Mihai Brestyan. “We need to fix her for the Olympic Games.”
I dated a gymnast while at The Ohio State University, trust me it is worth it.
Reminds me of the infamous Seinfeld episode.
