Sounds like it might be a tib fib from what I read. Brutal. Hope she recovers quickly.

I would rather have a tib/fib fracture.... recovery is faster. That looks like MCL and ACL from the angles of hyperextention.....

They updated the report saying ACL/MCL tears. Sucks, but i know plenty of people who had that happen playing HS sports, atleast she was getting paid for it.

ACL/MCL and a tibial plateau fracture. I'm not sure she'll be ready for the Olympics. Even if she is, that's a very significant injury. No way of knowing if she'll ever get back to 100%. Some do, some don't.
