Se baja Sanders por lesión de Kona 2019

Lionel Sanders confirmó su lesión que le dejó fuera del IM 70.3 Oceanside hace unos días.

Sanders se hizo una resonancia en la que se confirma que sufre una fractura en el sacro.

Todo empezó el 19 de marzo, cuando Sanders realizó un entrenamiento de carrera tras el cual comenzó a sentir molestias en el glúteo. Al no haber calentado pensó que era un pinzamiento del nervio ciático.

Después de tres semanas y el dolor continuar revisó la resonancia y recordó que el día 18 de marzo tuvo una caída en bici, causa final de esa rotura.

“Aunque los síntomas no eran de fractura del sacro, ordenó una resonancia magnética que a lamentablemente resultó positiva”, escribió Sanders en su Instagram.

“El médico cree que el hueso ya estaba debilitado, y que la caída terminó de fracturarlo”.

Sorry for the silence. It has taken me quite a while to get some definite answers. After 3 weeks of trying different healing modalities with no success, for what I thought to be a nerve impingement, I finally went to see a sports doctor. Though the symptoms weren’t indicating a fracture, he ordered an MRI to rule it out 100%. Sadly the MRI came back positive for a sacral fracture. On March 19th I did a brick workout where my glute started to hurt. I didn’t do a warmup for the run portion, and figured I had stepped a little funny and aggravated my sciatic nerve. Three weeks of rest, massages, physical therapy and though it was getting better, it was still too painful to run. I got the MRI back and called my mom to tell her the news and she asked me if I had fallen. This then reminded me that on my bike workout on March 18th I rode up to a water fountain and tried to be cool and balance at the fountain while taking a drink. I lost my balance and fell over directly onto my hip/butt, without having time to unclip. The embarrassment was far greater than any pain, so I immediately got back onto my bike and rode away. The next day I became symptomatic. The doctor thinks the bone was likely already weakened to fracture under this sort of trauma. Then the next couple of day’s training took it completely over the edge. Unfortunately, I am off running for 9-12 weeks. There is always a silver lining though, and I will take this time to work hard on my swim, and other deficiencies that could have contributed to this injury. We plan to document the whole process. You can mark my words that on the other side of this thing, I will be a stronger and better athlete. I want to sincerely thank all of my friends, family and sponsors who have been incredibly supportive in what has been a tough last couple of weeks. #nolimits

Ahora tendrá entre 9 y 12 semanas mínimo de parar en bici y a pie, pero aprovechará para mejorar su natación.

Ahora, su participación en Kona 2019 pende de un hilo, si no es que es un hecho que no correrá, pues su última oportunidad para calificarse sería el IRONMAN Mont Tremblant, del 18 de agosto, apenas unos días después de haber recibido su alta médica.
