Jeremy Flores, currently ranked No. 10 on the World Tour, came face-to-face with Indonesian reef yesterday. Luckily, the damage isn’t as bad as it looks. Here’s what the Frenchman had to say about the incident:
“Worst last 24h ever. Hit my head on the reef in the middle of nowhere in Indo, lost my memories for more than an hour…deep cuts all over my head & face… 24h later the helicopter finally came to get me to take me to an international hospital where I just got 2h of surgery on my face…the good news is there is no fracture…I would post a picture of my actual face but it would shock everyone so I won’t lol #nevergiveup”
Flores has joined the list of injured WSL athletes that seems to be growing by the day, but hopefully Flores will have a speedy recovery and be back in action by the start of J-Bay on July 8.
