Default Simon Lizotte Knee Injury

http://discgolf.ultiworld.com/2016/0...opean-masters/

Anyone know any further information? That's a pretty involved knee brace he is wearing. Hoping he did not tear any meniscus. The injury was on his brace knee which is not good long term. Hoping for the best, but as we all know, those disc golf injuries to the knees can be game changers. The good thing is, he could still throw fine from a stand still.

Interesting that he states World's is far more important to him that the European Masters.

You can't get 1x PD2's made by winning European Masters. I hope he recovers quick.

I don't get that he is saying that Worlds is more important from that statement, but that it is more about the timeline and how his knee is feeling. It seems he was considering playing the European Masters, but if not 100%, the goal as far as the injury timeline would be Worlds. I don't think he was putting one above the other.

Perhaps, I can see how I could misinterpret the statement.

With the way guys are throwing these days, power/distance, I'm thinking will see more knee injuries in the future.

You can have clean form and still land on it wrong or tweak it with a simple slip.

That and back injuries.

I'm not a #keepdginthewoods guy, but it would likely help with player longevity if they didn't need to throw 500+ feet to remain competitive on every hole.

I've heard some oldtime Frisbee guys suggest that overall technique distance hasn't really changed over the years with the top guys, just disc technology. So if guys in the 70's could throw lightweight lids over 400 feet and not blow their knees out I think current top pros can throw 500 safetly.

Of the max distance guys I never would have figured Simon would hurt his knee before Wiggins Jr.

ACL strain is the diagnosis I believe. No surgery required as of now, just rest. Return is TBD.

I didn't read the quote myself - but it wouldn't surprise me. EM is new, this year is only the second run, Worlds is well...Worlds.
