Kelly Slater fehlt in Australien verletzungsbedingt

Der “Goat”, “King Kelly”, “Willie” (so nennt ihn seine Mutter) oder auch “Jimmy Slade” ist erstmal raus. Der WCT-Charterflug am 06. März von LA nach Sydney hob ohne ihn ab, denn Kelly Slater will sich erst einmal auskurieren.

“I’ve been struggling with recent and ongoing injuries in both ankles since the Pipe Masters event and I had a separate injury in my right hip (and maybe previously broken foot) this past week which has left me unable to surf. It’s a tough one for me because I love Australia so much and miss the time I usually get to spend there each year. I’ll just have to use the time to get myself up to a level physically I never really got back to after my broken foot (in Jeffreys Bay in 2017) and get myself out of constant pain. Good luck to all my fellow competitors and I hope to see everyone back on tour soon.”

Als Ersatz wird Mikey Wright beim anstehenden Rip Curl Newcastle Cup antreten, und wir sind uns sicher, dass Mikey den “King” gebührend vertreten wird. Ganz nebenbei ist er mittlerweile 49 Jahre alt– da kann man sich auch mal ein paar Wehwehchen gönnen. Gute Besserung!
