A brutal setback for Permin Richmouth!
The Swiss Confederation was seriously injured on Tuesday. On Thursday, investigations revealed a devastating diagnosis: a torn cruciate ligament, a tear in the external meniscus, and a stretch in the outer ligament of the left knee.
Specifically, this means: the 25-year-old from Zug will be out for the remainder of the season before actually starting. Reichmuth is one of the top 120 wrestlers recently allowed to train in sawdust. Passed.
“It is not easy to accept.”
It’s not the first serious knee injury for the Zug-based athlete. Reichmouth suffered three cruciate ligament tears between 2014 and 2017. However, the right knee was affected in each case.
On the other hand, the left knee was not affected yet. Within the next three weeks, a Reichmouth surgery is scheduled for the Hirslanden Clinic in Sham ZG.
The unlucky fellow from Zug, who won four wreath festivals in the 2019 season and finished third in the Swiss Confederation, says: “I am very disappointed with the new knee injury, and it is not easy for me to accept what happened. Especially since I have never felt fit. As physical as it was in the past few weeks. “
How it will continue remains unclear
The question Schwingschweiz is now asking himself: Should the Swiss have to fear for his career after a torn fourth cruciate ligament? Reichmuth, who is currently completing his training as a physiotherapist, remains calm: “From my previous knee injuries and training I know what to expect in the next few months and that the road is going to be very long.”
But it is also clear that there are no guarantees. “Now the first thing is to have a good operation and then calmly devote myself to rehabilitating my knee. I do not want and must not decide at this stage how things will go after that.” (Eg / wst)
