Fraser has spoken about his LCL tendon injury
Mat Fraser recently won the CrossFit Championship in Dubai. However, he has recently broken his silence about the injury that nearly derailed his whole comeback.
“If I lifted my leg up to the side, my knee bent the wrong way. It just dropped in,” he emotionally said.
Fraser continued: “I didn’t want to tell anyone. I didn’t want any of the sharks smelling blood in the water.”
The American athlete must have been going through hell, the lateral collateral ligament (LCL) runs along the outside of the knee joint. It runs from the bottom of the thigh bone to the top of the lower leg bone.
Luckily for Fraser, he was able to overcome this and go onto Championship glory in Dubai.
