Micha will soon enter into training again

Inflammation is removed – Good healing progress and great goals- Two-time Ironman 70.3 world champion had to undergo a brief surgery at his left knee

Berlin. Michael Raelert is on the road to recovery after his withdrawal from the Ironman 70.3 European Championship in Wiesbaden due to an injury. In a brief surgery, a little inflammation was removed from his left knee. This inflammation had caused problems again and again in the past. "Everything went very well," says Michael Raelert. He is currently wearing a protective splint on his left leg, but the first rehabilitation measures have already begun very successfully. "I can soon enter into training again,” says the 32-year old, “and I'm very excited to do so."


The two-time world champion in Ironman 70.3 had problems since he had a mountain bike crash in spring. Even before the Ironman in Frankfurt, he had to reduce his running training because of these issues, and the problems occurred again in preparation for the race in Wiesbaden. "The issues appeared shortly before the race in Wiesbaden in hard training sessions, the old injury was not healed 100 percent," says Michael Raelert, "because of that, I simply needed a solution now."


After his cancellation for Wiesbaden, Michael Raelert visited several renowned doctors in Germany to work out a targeted treatment plan together. "On the advice of these experts I have finally decided to undergo a brief surgery to fix the problem once and for all," says 32-year old, who had already completed a targeted physiotherapy program before. Cause of the issues was an inflammation in his left knee, which had always caused pain to the patellar tendon. This has now been removed during a 30-minute surgery in Rostock from the experienced sports orthopedic surgeon Prof. Dr. Thomas Tischer.


The healing progress of Michael Raelert is very positive. However, the Ironman 70.3 World Championship on September 8 in Las Vegas come still too early for him. At the Ironman World Championship on October 12 in Kona, Michael Raelert wants to support his brother. "As 59th in the current pro-ranking of the World Triathlon Corporation I missed the first direct qualification for Kona," says Michael Raelert. "This year, not too many things fitted together as I had hoped before. But I’m absolutely convinced, that I can definitely play in the concert again at the latest next year. "
