Case Report: Unusual cause of fibular fracture in a golfer

BJSM extends sympathies to golfer Thomas Levet, who seems likely to miss the British Open due to a ‘celebration injury’ after his French Open win (see him immediately pre-injury, left).

He clearly doesn’t spend as much time in the water hazards as some of us. The hazards are usually incredibly wide and powerfully ball-sucking but they are not that deep.  Quelle dommage.

Interestingly, there have been papers published on score-celebration injuries in soccer! Injuries included ankle, clavicle and rib fractures and the mean time to recover was 6.2 weeks.

Enjoy the weekend – celebrate safely!
