Last week, during a training run, Olympic hopeful Heidi Kloser fractured her femur and tore ligaments in her knee. Although she’s out for the Sochi Games, she was with her team during opening ceremonies. In true Olympian style, she joined her team using a wheelchair, and later, crutches. She is expected to have surgery within the next few weeks and already has her sights set on the 2018 Olympics in South Korea.
In the last quarter of Superbowl XLVIII, Richard Sherman suffered a high ankle injury and left the game. He sustained an injury to the same ankle earlier in the game. Although Sherman didn’t return to the game, the Seahawks took the Superbowl in 43-8 win. After the game, Sherman was on crutches and wearing a boot. Unless medical intervention is necessary, recovery and physical therapy will take between 6 and 12 weeks.
