Mattie Larson’s broken leg

This is a short article about Mattie’s leg.  

According to Eric, “Four doctors read the results. A broken tibia (the bigger leg bone) just above her ankle. When asked when the pain started in that area, Mattie said since the last day of Olympic trials in Philly. Her doctors informed her that was when she broke it — a month ago. She just couldn’t go anymore on Saturday with the pain.”

I wonder how much Shayla’s broken leg effected her.  I really wonder if more than not being able to go anymore, Shayla’s injury served as a wake up call that maybe she shouldn’t go anymore.  Somebody breaks their leg on a full turn, I think I’d reevaluate my priorities too.
