Trampoline injury: Repatriated Gymnast !

The FIG pronounced, that Mads Serejoe Jorgensen, the Danish Trampoline athlete who was injured in a bad fall last February 19 during training in Canada, underwent an operation on his cervical vertebrae and since he is recovering quite gradually. His medical transfer to his country is now possible.
Because of the tretraplegy, it is unfortunately too early to make any speculation regarding the little hope that he will ever be able to regain movement in his upper body.
