It was a couple of weeks before my injury had happened i got selected into the Mackay Cutters Womens Rugby League Academy. i was super keen. however to stay in the team i had to keep improving at every fitness test. So i asked the Moranbah Miners opens Womens team coach if i could train with him and the other laides. he said yes. training was fun but hard and it was helping until the last five minutes of training. we were playing a mini game and i stepped my foot planted and everything but my foot twisted with me and CRACK! Torn my ACL and miniscus completley. i went to hospital and got told i have to go under surgery. a full reconstruction at just 14years old. so on wednesday i went to surgery and left hospital thursday and it just happened to be my birthday that Saturday. Worst birthday of my life!! I am never going to be able to play sports again. I will never be able to play sports again. I wont be able to sports ever again.

    Hey K.J.,
    I’m so sorry to hear about your knee injury. I was 15 when I tore my first ACL, and there were many times I didn’t think I’d be able to play my sport again. Please never forget that you’re not the only athlete out there that’s endured a life-changing knee injury. There are many outstanding and successful athletes that have returned to their game better than ever after an ACL reconstruction. From reading your story, I have no doubt that you’ll be back to the sport you love after your recovery. Never ever ever give up, and keep an eye out for some of the Rio athletes that have recovered from knee injuries… I promise you there’s more than you think. Best of Luck! -Kris22
