What a terrible week for Australia.
… US-based athlete Clay Stephens (Illinois) ruptured his ACL earlier in the week followed by Commonwealth Games Gold medalist Chris Remkes suffering the same fate overnight at the Artistic World Cup round in Doha.
Having already competed in the recent World Cup events in both Melbourne and Baku, the in-form Remkes had made the finals of both the Floor and Vault in Doha.
Sadly, things went horribly wrong early in his Floor routine with Remkes landing awkwardly on an early pass. injuring his left knee.
Medical scans conducted in Doha confirmed the suspected ACL and meniscus injury, ending his World Cup season and his competing year. …
Chris was injured landing his new triple twisting double layout. The skill was quite well done. The landing not obviously dangerous. ☹️
