John Orozco of the Bronx N.Y./Team Hilton HHonors (U.S. Olympic Training Center) will have surgery on June 19 to repair an Achilles tendon injury on his right leg sustained during a training session earlier this week.
“John is a fundamental part of our men’s program,” said Steve Penny, president of USA Gymnastics,” and he has proven time and time again that he can overcome adversity and achieve great things. We will certainly do what we can to support his recovery.”
As a result, Orozco has withdrawn from the U.S. Men’s Team for the 2015 Pan American Games, and the replacement athlete will be determined in accordance with the official selection procedures.
Surprisingly, it’s the same Achilles tendon he had repaired in 2010. It was injured that time on Vault. This time it was on Floor.
