Rebounding off a box jump, Julie Foucher appeared to suffer an achilles injury during Event 3 at the Central Regional. As she ascended onto the box during the first set of box jumps, she favored her foot in mid-air almost immediately after rebounding off the floor. She turned and looked down at the back of her leg in a look of confusion as if as if something had hit her from behind? At this point its just speculation but many people who suffer achilles ruptures experience the same sensation.
We’ll keep you posted as we get more information.
Julie Foucher unbelievably competes in event 4 and 5 despite a walking boot!
"You could sit and pout about it and be angry about what happened, but at the end of the day I can’t change anything. I wouldn’t have done anything different. I want to make the most of the situation and have as much fun as I can for the rest of the weekend." —@JulieFoucher Watch the full video on the CrossFit Games Facebook page.
