Julie Foucher with Achilles Injury, Event 3

Screen Shot 2015-05-30 at 12.05.25 PM

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.

UPDATE

Julie Foucher unbelievably competes in event 4 and 5 despite a walking boot!
