Lotte Friis sprained her wrist and some fingers yesterday


Breaking news on Ekstra Bladet: Danish world champion Lotte Friis got her foot stuck during a jump over some booms yesterday, and fell so badly that she afterwards couldn’t move her hand and fingers. It took 4-5 hours to get a diagnosis, while she feared to be out for 2 months because of something broken, but luckily she had only sprained her wrist and some fingers.

This is not the first time that she hurts herself during dryland training, as last year she first sprained both her feet during a football (soccer) match in September, and then in November got a concussion from throwing a medicine ball into a wall and then looking away when it bounced back. So no worries, she is used to it, and expects to be back in full training in a few days.
