Michael Jung confirmed on his Facebook page this afternoon that he broke a piece off his tibia above his ankle in his fall at the first water complex with fischerRocana FST at Burghley earlier this month. He had surgery today to insert two screws to secure the bone chip.

That means Michael won Burghley with La Biosthetique Sam FBW and the FEI European Championships with fischerTakinou on back-to-back weekends … with a broken leg. We’ve often called him The Terminator here on EN, but this takes things to a whole new level.

Please join us in wishing Michael a very speedy recovery!
