Gabriel Medina Has Torn His MCL
It was only a couple of weeks ago, reports came through that John Florence was sidelined after tearing his MCL.
And now, Gabriel Medina has reported the same injury, via his Instagram page.
"This afternoon I had an MRI taken on both my knees and the results showed an injury on my left knee. The recovery time will be between 4 and 6 weeks. Due to this unfortunate event I will be out of JBay. Next week I will start physiotherapy and I’m confident I will be back even stronger. Thanks all of you for the unconditional support."
As Steve reported in the Day 2 wrap up from the Rio Pro, Gabe gets a fresh scorecard in January, so he'll remain in cruise control for the rest of the year.
